Hi there, I just bought 2 Hampshire pigs, same dad different moms,they arent ready to breed yet, but when they are can I breed them? I've done a little research and it looks like a hit or miss, I just need some opinions so just let me know. Thanks!

I don't see a problem, especially if the pigs are going to be freezer pigs. Line breeding won't matter there.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure you shouldn't have a problem breeding 1/2 bro & sis. Like @frustratedearthmother said...especially if they're heading for the freezer.
I was going to sell as breeding stock maybe castrate males for the freezer like you guys said. But thanks for the input helps alot
