Growing well

Our final three Berkshire porkers are growing well. Or rather, the two gilts are growing well.

The boar, on the large side since farrowing, is growing extremely well and looks several weeks older than his littermates.

The back-end view shows the massive difference between the boar and the gilts. He’s likely to be finished at least a fortnight before them.

  1. A nice trio of beasts Stoney; I hope they do well for you, regardless of whether you keep them or sell them.

    • They’re going for pork. One will go in the freezer to keep us going for about 12 months, the others will be sold as butchered half pigs to pay the last of the feed bills plus the slaughtering, butchering and transport costs.
