The piglets weigh about 60 lbs. and have a couple of weeks before slaughter. So they should reach 80-100 lbs. by that time. Lots of sweet potatoes in their future!

Cosmo is really into the piglets. I enjoy watching his interaction with them.

I have a special connection to Katie. She's a little more agressive and animated. I get that.
These are the next piglets Tamara will proudly present on her menu.
Della is Shelly and Mike's daughter. She loves the farm and is not afraid to get her hands dirty.
