Keeping pigs

Recommended Posts

Anyone got any experience of keeping pigs?

 

Saw this on the BBC website yesterday and thought one of these specially bred mini-pigs would make a good xmas present for the bairn who loves animals. If it's good enough for Jonathan Woss it's good enough for me! They only grow to about a fifth of the size of normal pigs apparently and I've got a huge back garden for it to roam in. Best thing is if i get sick of the swine I can easily slaughter it and live on bacon sarnies for a few months.

From that it looks like you wouldn't even get a weeks worth of sarnies. Not even a half rack of ribs either, you'd have to kill the whole lot for a half decent barbecue for 4.

Fucking hell SMO, anything to cut down on the shopping bill. Bacon isn't that expensive anyway man if you buy it in bulk. Less messy than raising a pig.

If the film Snatch is to be believed, they also come in handy for getting rid of dead bodies!

 

Mythbusters: debunked

 

Does this mean someone has attempted to prove it may be true? :lol:

I've seen them use pig bodies to test human body myths.

 

 

Never seen them prove they couldn't be used to get rid of human parts though, especially as a few people tend to be eaten by them (although not necessarily killed first by them) a year.
