im a young man only 20 years old ive always been into horse i have a couple very nice ones....Ive been thinking about getting some hogs though not looking to get rich or anything just kind of has a hobby thing and maybe make a few bucks...i dont want very many just like 5 - 10 head of them...a guy around here has 4 of them he says he will sell me cheap he say they are healthy hogs they are all yorkshire two of them are sows and two are gilts....i think i will be able to get them for little or nothing as i know the guy pretty good....i was wondering what would be the best thing to do with the hogs??? should i breed them and get the piglets and sell them right away?? how long do i keep them and when do i know to get rid of them??? is yorkshire a good breed?? our old hog yard is over grown with grass i always mowed it down before will the hogs eat the grass if i put them in the pen or do i need to mow it??? do they graze like a cow or horse does??? how do you wean the piglets?? and at what age do you cut the boars??? and how should i go about doing that???

I know its alot of question but i sure would be grateful to know this stuff....

Thank you very much!!!
