Red Wattle Revision 11/1/16
We removed pigs from our farm 8/12 for personal reasons. Problems included eating newborn lambs, difficulties in loading, and destruction of good pasture land. It was also difficult to keep some enclosed within netwire fencing. However, they are extremely hardy and excellent foragers on poor pasture/woods. We suggest this breed for those wishing to utilize wooded areas or areas not conducive for cattle/sheep/goat production. Perimeter fencing should have electricity. This is a good breed for those wanting the heritage growth, survivability and return on investment, even if you do not eat pork.
