That’s good. I know he’s in good hands. We slaughtered Cornish Cross chickens yesterday. I grow them big. Most dress out 6-7 pounds. I cradle those dirty birdies as I carry them to the killing cone. Yes I am about to cut their throat and bleed them out. No I don’t want to hurt them on the way. Legs and wings can break or pop out of socket. I try hard to be careful with them. Oxymoron? Maybe. Just because I’m going to eat them doesn’t mean that I don’t care about them.
You care about your pig. Yes, you are going to eat him, but you sure will take care of him and see that he has a good life.

Ham Solo was literally gifted to us by our neighbor so we didn't really do much research before we got him so we are very much newbies. Thanks for all the info!

Pigs are fairly easy to raise and reward your efforts with some delicious meat. Do you have a slaughter date set? Here slaughterhouses are booking a year out! We got in a bind one year and did our own.

He is going to the butcher on June 7 if I remember correctly. Do you think he will be big enough then? Right now his estimated weight is 185 pounds.
