As many of you know, we lost the farrowing house and feed shed to Hurricane Irma last year. We took a bit to decide our fate and have decided to sell all our equipment. We have 5 farrowing crates (3 on raised floors and 2 without) for $115 each less if you take multiples, 2 large double sided creep feeders $75 each, 2 large feeders $25 each, 2 custom heavy duty portable pens/crates that are fully collapsible $150 each, they can go in truck bed, flat bed trailer, larger horse trailer or as extra pen space.

Very proud of our exhibitors at the North Florida Livestock Show and Sale. We've heard there were several of our kids that placed 3rd in their classes as well as a 2nd. Once the final placings are posted and Christian's hog is pulled out of the mix, we'll have an S3 bonus check for our highest placing exhibitor.

We have many friends and customers that are preparing for the Madison Livestock show. It has been abnormally cold here for the past week. This will significantly reduce your hogs daily gain as they are using lots of energy to stay warm. Give your pig some extra feed to help and weigh them to know where they stand.

How to Break Baby Pigs to Drive

Christmas break is an excellent opportunity to work with your pigs daily. Practice not only make you a better Showman but also helps the pig build muscle.

Training a baby pig to drive is not always an easy task. Depending on the age of the pig there are ways to teach it to walk and be successful in the show ring. Paden Jackson, a ten-year-old showman from Mountain View Gotebo, Oklahoma, says the key is to work with your pig every day to teach it consi…

All the pigs for Jan-Dec shows are sold. We have 2 gilts that we bred out of the show cycle so we'll be expecting durocXYork and YorkXBluebutt litters in the next 60-100 days.

We were blessed with a beautiful litter from Lulu last night. I like these guys even more than her last litter. They are perfect for the Florida State Fair and Madison. She only had 7 but all are stocky and healthy. Have to work today so no pics yet.

Lulu is on deck, we should be having piglets in the next week. Lulu is a Yorkshire from Williams and she was AI'ed with Sugar Shack from Cordele.
