John, I can't help with your transport problem. I do have one question, What will you do with 100 potbellied pigs? I assume that you are not intrested in sending them to market. Really none of my business but my curiosity got the best of me.

Did you finally find someone to give them to that wouldn't eat them? Can't say I will ever understand that, but more power to ya.

Call up the sale barn and ask them for the tel.# of the livestock hauler they like the best. They will be insured, bonded, and get the job done as quick as possible.
