anyone ever raised pigs and couldn't kill them after
I know a farmer,otherwise hard-headed ,who kept a huge sow that he said had just become"part of the place". All his othe r pigs met the usual end but this one lived the life of Riley long after it was any use for breeding.
I think I'm not alone in thinking that piglets are really cute and endearing but there comes a time when they start getting cheeky . Then they get mischievous and a bit troublesome . Then they get big and clever and a bit risky for kids to be around. Then comes the point when they fight you for the food bucket and start really trashing things and they ain't so endearing anymore. Which makes it easier to say goodbye
The middle-whites and this year's OS&Bs are quite good but the Berkshires took naughtyness to another level.
