Hey y'all, I feed pigs in north central Illinois about ten miles south of I-80 half way between Iowa and Indiana. It more of a hobby for me, I feed 12-14 barrows and guilts outside every year in a feedlot. I try and raise healthy and happy hogs to put meat on the tables of family and friends. I like Durocs the best but have had good luck with Yorkshires and York/Duroc and York/hamp crosses. I did t have much luck with Berkshire and am not sure what all the hipe is about em. I row crop 1000 acres with my 76 year old grandpa who refuses to retire and give up the reigns and I do carpenter work and concrete work in the summers and winters. I', not exactly a seasoned vet when it comes to hogs but hope to contribute as well as learn what I can. Is this a new forum/site?
