    How many acres per hog should be allowed for pasture? woods?
    I realize there are a lot of variables but I was hoping to get an idea.
    thanks

    Our hogs are out on a 20 acres pasture. We have had them on a 1/2 acres pasture in the past. This is for 7 sows and piglets. Many breeders have a couple of sets on much smaller. Start off small.

    We have 4 adults and 18 piglets on 2 acres. They only use part of it.

    We do. I feed them 5 pounds each (more now since 3 are nursing) every morning.
