I would be concerned for the pigs belly dragging also for whem they drop piglets. Only other thing I can thank of is concert gets hot in the summer and freezing in the winter. I can understand if it's gonna have a concert floor but that's a pain to clean i would think you would have more rotting wall problems with it then it's worth.

Well, when piglets are born that’ll be in the barn and we have a stall mat so nothing hard on them. I will definitely mention to Chris about belly drags and leg issues, etc. thanks

I wouldn't concrete it. For our first pigs, we built a Hawg Hut. We put it on skids so we could move it around. Now we have the Pig Palace, it stays dry inside.

The pigs are growing! They are looking good. I am giving them soured corn and pellets. They also get weeds and grass from the garden. They love that!

@Beekissed I tried fermenting their pellets but they didn’t like it. I had 4 buckets of that stuff! LOL

Must not have been hungry enough. ;) You leave it and don't feed them until they clean it up and they'll adapt to it just fine. Chickens are the same way the first time they have it, but then they look at regular food like it's puke after eating FF for awhile.

The pigs are getting big. They go to slaughter August 24. I’m sure glad I booked a slaughter date when we got them. All the slaughter places around here are now booked a year ahead. All of a sudden everyone wants to be a farmer, raising animals for meat.

I pull weeds from the garden and toss to the pigs. Today they got broccoli plants.
