The Iberian pig and what it produces.

This article has really captured my imagination and it occurs to me that they're not too dissimilar to the Large Black pigs that we were keeping at the beginning of the year. Room for thought? Most definitely.

Its amazing just how big a two year old pig will get if its left to its own devices. I had to stop the other day and take a double take at just how big the girls from Gladys's first litter were and they were only born in January. They're fast becoming big lumps too.
