Probably the easiest livestock we've ever raised in all our years of living this lifestyle. The Large Black Hog. Super intelligent animals, don't have many health issues, convert everything to body mass, not aggressive to work with usually. Just don't pass out in the pen or they may see you as the next meal, lol. I just wanted to expose people to the idea of raising old world types of livestock to keep their genetic diversity going before its lost forever. here are less than 1000 breeding animals left in the United States today.
