Our two pigs go to be butchered – part 1

We took our two barrow pigs to the butcher today.  They were 6 months and one week old and looked to be 200 pounds each.  We’ll get a live weight from the butcher when we pick up the carcasses.

Kip built a ramp just high enough to reach our friend’s truck bed.

With some feed as enticement the two barrows went easily into the truck.

This coming weekend will be the ‘getting all that meat into the freezer’ part!
