To raise a pig, you should get a book to research from your local library. Make sure you do not purchase more than one or two piglets. Your pigpen should be well-contained so they can’t escape. They will need shelter, lots of fresh water, and attention. They also eat a lot, so you’ll need to buy them grain or corn. The best kinds are free from hormones and antibiotics. They also enjoy table scraps, yogurt or other dairy products, and vegetable peelings.
