Three Not So Little Pigs

These are our Yorkshire pigs at around 16 weeks old enjoying a treat of some lettuce and kale. It’s hard to say how much they weigh, but to give you an idea of their size, these transport boxes they’re standing in are 5 feet long and 4 feet high.

(Don’t worry, these are just transport boxes.. They have a nice big swath of woods out back surrounded with electric fence to root around in.)

Their diet is 95% grain and forage so they are solid and dense, with very little fat. Hope they still fit in these boxes 8 weeks from now!
