MEET OUR PUDDLE OF PIGS ~ UPDATED 16.09.23
We have 2 beloved hand raised sows that form the core of our breeding program. Ruby and Nala. They had their first litters in 2023 to our lovely friendly Boar, Stanley and they did an exceptional job co-parenting their piglets and shared feeding duties between them. They have recently (July) had their second litters on the same day as each other AGAIN! And are co parenting their 16 babies.
Piglets when available are $100 each and available NOW. They and are ear tagged, but not castrated. They come in a variety of different colours and make marvellous pets or temporary gardeners as they are very strong diggers so are the organic alternative to a rotary hoe. Any piglets that aren't sold are retained in paddocks and free range fed till around 8-10 months old then then provide delicious meat for the family. They can grown between 60-80 odd kgs (knee high).
There are no teacup sized pigs available in Australia. So when considering adding one to your farm please be prepared for the powerful animal they will grow into albeit they can be very smart and friendly. We highly recommend keeping them in electrified fencing with a good strong shelter and immovable concrete water trough. They will need a muddy wallow over Summer or permanent water source they can bath in as they cant sweat and can overheat. We also use trampolines for additional paddock shade which works well for us.Pigs are not for residential properties, no exceptions. They are social animals that prefer to have a piggy companion so its best if you can accommodate at least 2 that will then form a family. You need a PIC number for your property for any more than 1 livestock animal in SA as a legal requirement (fees apply):
and also need to be registered with Australian Pork (free):
We are not expecting any more litters till 2024.
