    I am with Exhausted. While I have never eaten one, a pig is a pig is a pig. Fire up the smoker!

    No do not feed Dogfood. It is to rich and you will just end up with a very fat pig.
    It is a lot cheaper to just by All stock and or Grain

    I feed my PBP Scaps. Bread Lettuce apples. If you are raising one for food you can feed Alstock type of food. If for a pet you can spend even more $$ and by a special blend of food the petstore sells for Pot Belly Pigs. Regardless what you are raising it for. Just like a regular large pig you do not want to over feed.
    I Butcher and grind the whole pig as the hams and bacon would be on the small size. Most people over feed their pets so that is where you get to much fat.
    A Free pig and 50 to 60lbs of ground pig meat. That is a good deal and a whole lot easier then butchering up a 500 lb pig. As far as the meat tasting different no way. It is still just a pig.
    For adding to sausage and for making Breakfast you just cant go wrong.

    what do u feed a PBP if its a pet dogfood?

    I just grind the whole thing up and make my sausage with it. Add it to hamburger for sandwiches and meat loaf and you will be hooked.
    No one could possibly tell the difference one it is ground. When i made ham they just thought it was a small pig.
    Yum Yum
    And the meat is Free
