Its all go

We have just weaned the last sow for 2015 lets just say she is not a happy girl !!. this will be her last litter born with our prefix as she will be heading to scotland along with a boar and young gilt to start the second herd of pedigree lops in scotland. The buyers are sending a haulier to us in two weeks.

We have a litter born on 11th july getting ready for the start of the winter fatstocks the heaviest hit the 70kg mark on this weeks weigh ins so for the third year running we will have a mix of porkers and baconers to show & sell.

and while all this is going on we are getting ready for our next venture in the pig world when we start to bring on a new breeding readiness for 2016 show season. :chuffed:

Our last show will be 3rd dec  which will give us a month to relax before the januarys start popping out.

Sounds as though things are going well. Is that last show the one at Stafford? I'm going to try and make that one, I may end up kipping in the van.
