David: How many hogs, including young ones,do you have and how many breeds are represented? Do you have a favorite breed? I always enjoy your pictures. We always had a few hogs when I was growing up. They don't rank high on my favorite animal list. One can drive cattle, sheep, and even horses where you want them to go. I can't remember ever driving a hog where I wanted him to go, we seemed to always arrive at the place to which he wanted to go. I have always heard that hogs are very intelligent animals. Based on my experience trying to drive them I would have to say that they are more intelligent than I am. At least we always went to the place they wanted to go rather than where I wanted them to go.

Dan, I have mainly Yorkshire or white hogs as they call them around here. They make the best sausage along with the Poland China I think.I like a lot of fat in my sausage. The fat back is also good on them. The Duroc has the best Bacon or midlin as we call it. I have about 18 right now. but am breeding 3 sows as we speak. I like the Duroc Poland China cross so far. I think we may get the best of both of them. And the prettiest pigs I have ever seen,but time will tell.
Oh, the way to get a hog to go where you want em is to lead em with a bucket of Dog Food, they love it. You can also but a bucket over there head and back em where you want to.
Don, that Duroc bacon it hard too beat. But the type of feed helps
