Spent all day prepping the farrowing room for the pigs that are due starting next weekend. Installed a new heater and pressure washed the whole place. A few more odds and ends to finish up the next couple days and we should be in business.

I used to work in a farrowing barn. All that crap on the sides of every stall would have been unacceptable. Lol


Cold as ice!

Very nice set up. How many sows do you have? Breed?

I have 2 farrowing in the next couple weeks and 2 more in a month. No farrowing crates yet, just using Smidley farrowing huts.

I have only 7 right now, not nearly enough to justify the money spent building this farrowing room. I have 6 crates on the left and 6 weaning pens on the right. Manure pits with pit scrapers and pit fans under both.

I would like to get back up to 10 or 12. Two of the ones I have now I cannot get to breed, can't even catch them in heat. I do pure bred Duroc along with cross breeds of several varieties. Mostly Hampshire crosses although I picked up a pure bred Yorkshire recently

Do you sell feeders or do you finish them out yourself? If selling feeders what do you think they will sell for.

Im think I should buy some feeders and finish 6 to 8 of them. Start in late spring and will be ready to butcher early Nov. I like big hog 300 to 350 lbs. Fat equals flavor.
