I will try to help you, I did at one time raise pigs and was involved a lot with the Iowa Pork Producers.
Where do you live? How large of an area do you have for them? Inside or outside? A hog feeder? How large are these pigs going to be when you get them?
They will need plenty of good clean water and feed present all of the time. A good clean and dry place for housing. If your using older facilities, use wood shavings or straw for bedding. Use the manure for your garden in 2005, not this year.
To be real honest with you, it is cheaper to buy the meat in the grocery store than raise it yourself and pay to have it butchered!
email me or I will check this site again. My father passed away and his funeral is Tuesday.
