That's the market price, that is. When the price drops below my cost of production I just keep the pigs born, and raise them out. So these pictures are of my winter pig crop. Some of them I'll choose as replacement gilts, one I'll choose as a replacement boar, the other hundred or so will become the finished hogs i'll sell in the spring and early summer.
I'm still able to sell everything I produce, so I don't have to worry too much about having spare hogs that I can't sell; pigs are a popular table fare, and one of these days I might produce enough extra to make it to a farmers market, but not so far.
