    You raise 12 at a time?

    How much land do you have? Pasture raising them or penning them up?

    I love hearing how others do it. I have never done more than three at a time

    No, the pasture is for our cattle, I have a pretty sizable old feedlot behind my old dairy barn, I raise em on concrete, Not really fancy but better than confinement in my opinion. I have another concrete lot east of the barn I usually feed out 6 at a time in, I generally do 6 twice a year, gonna try two groups of 12 this year, 12 spring pigs then 12 fall pigs.
