What about just ringing a local stock agent they are always talking to farmers and may know of someone looking for pigs.

I would hate to be paying to feed our piggies, 1 sow and 3 that are close to going in the freezer. I am lucky we always have milk from the cows and they eat grains/mix that the cows are getting mixed into their maize on the feed pad. It is purchased by the truck and trailer load so a few sacks per load don't go amiss.

Pigs update, I think i have sold two of them for $200 each so still have two to go, they are large white X saddleback between 30 & 40 kilos at a guess, so they could probably go straight into the freezer, but if i were keeping them for pork i would definately give them another 4-5 weeks.
hey mc2631 do i know you?
I would describe these as porkers rather than weaners as they have been weaned for about 6-7 weeks.

Hi Mike Don't think I know you as only been in CHB for the past year.$200 each is a good price as I just sold a large white x duroc for $170 (of trade items) at 47kg. She was 9 months old and slower growing but all good things take time.:rolleyes: Are they all boars left? would prefer the sow but I suppose she would have been sold by now? Im happy to take the 2 around the 140 mark for each one and can pick them up on Sunday. But if you can get $200 for them thats good. I have a great set up and provide all my pigs great care with plenty of room and feed.

I would pay more for the sow though.

Also would be good to meet someone local. :)
