@Yankees99, I'm wondering if you are over 18? You sound young but, we will be glad to help. First you need to read about raising pigs...and do you have their shelter and fenced area in place? You do realize they will plow it entirely by rooting? And depending on where you live, they may need a water supply for a wallow. Pigs cannot sweat and don't do well in heat.

Most areas have feeder pigs on Craigslist. Also, do you have a plan for harvesting the pigs once grown to market size?

Once he gets older, a feeder pig eats pig mash, at least that’s what we feed ours, mostly. We mix it with water too. We also secure the water trough because pigs will turn it over and fast! Then..no water. There is a pig forum on here..it’s got a lot of good reading for a bunch of questions about raising feeders and such.
