To be eligible for the Suwannee River Livestock Fair, our pigs will have to weigh at least 225 and no more than 275 pounds on Saturday, March 11th.
Today we weighed them. To weigh pigs you use a portable swine scale. It is basically a scale shaped like a cage. You get the pig to walk into it, slam the door shut, check the gauge for the weight, and then let the pig out again. Simple.
Katie's pig, "Mia Ham" was 2oo pounds today. Jr's pig, "Donk" was 180 pounds. Both are doing well and on track for a successful weigh in. (Emma is not in FFA, and hence is not raising a pig)
A little more than one month to go.
