Pigs new pasture
Our pigs go to butcher as they reach their prime size, up to 300lbs, We generally believe anything around 275lbs is ready. The first two pigs to leave last week were actually just over the 300lb mark and were said to be perfect specimens by our slaughterer and butcher. The larger pigs you see in this clip are headed out this week.
