    Ended up with 164 in the unexpected farrowing and now my regular sows that are meant to farrow will start next week and they all drop big litters of 12-14 so potentially another 84 could arrive LOL. Two of the new moms with their 4 and 5 week olds.

    That is Chops, Ribs, Bacon, Shoulder, Butt, and smoked shanks on the hoof. Forgot the ears and snout!! [touchdown][bow]

    The *ssholes and lips are something more of a challenge.....Google wasn't much help with "appropriate" recipes. :eek:

    We do a lot of things here but going without pork ain't one of them ;)

    Pickled pig's feet come to mind. And let's not forget all that natural casing for sausage and brots.

    Cute little piglets. Do you ever sell piglets instead of raising them yourself?

    I started dabbling in selling weans last spring, after a lot of folks expressed a interest in raising their own to finish. That and I needed a way to offset the feed cost for 150 I do finish.

    My Mom raised a few pigs and so did my Uncle. They really enjoyed it and it is amazing how fast they grow. My Uncles pigs were sort of free range with an 8 acre fenced in wooded area. They grew up to be really healthy.

    I look at that picture and read potentially 84 piglets coming....and I just think of how much work that will be. You sir, have your hands full. [respect]

    164 + 84 is a couple truck loads of corn a week. Hm.

    When it comes to good food, there just not a whole lot I don't produce, make or bake :) Not only how I earn my living but I like to eat good :) Even make my own box traps and a couple dozen each year to sell.
