My hubby can really taste taints in meat. We ordered half a hog from a guy near us and he said that every time I cook it up it stinks up the whole house and it tastes awful but I can't taste anything or smell anything. I think that the pig we got was an old male that was used for breeding or something.4-H would be cool but get a pig for yourselves too. Worst part about $-h is they get everything to butcher weight then auction it off and you get no meat. I know some kids skip auctioning but they really need the money for their next year project/savings accounts.
Depending on the breed boar taint isnt a real thing btw. It does exist yes but not until over 6-8 months old, and mostly in dark skinned pigs. Of all finished male pigs only 20% have taint and only 75% of people can taste boar taint.....so your odds are pretty low for ever experiencing it.
