looking to add 3 or 4 heritage breed hogs to the farm this coming spring and I was wondering what are some of the best breeds for meat that's not the leaned out supermarket variety.
Acorns?how important is the feed? I can tell the difference in my lambs when I have not free ranged enough or didn't finish with some corn. was kinda thinking of finishing hogs with acorns just to see the difference. not looking for pork, looking for THAT pork. want to cure one and freeze one.
Don't you know fat and cured meat is not good for you? I will stop by to get all that poison off your hands. You are welcome.Berkshire is popular and often easy to find. I hope to raise a few hogs in the future. Mangalitsa and Gloucestershire Old Spot are at the top of my list for the high fat and Curing quality...JJ
