boar selection

Asked April 24, 2014, 8:37 PM EDT

I'm Kathy Bottorff, the sec/tres of the Red Wattle Hog Association. I also write our newsletter. I'm currently looking for information on boar selection. Why its so important and what to look for. Boar selection on an heirloom pasture hog for small farmers can be quite different from larger commercial operations. Can you direct me to the proper materials or perhaps someone there would even consider writing an article for our newsletter.

Kathy:

I believe you and I corresponded by email already concerning this question about boar selection, as well as you request for information on PEDv. I will be putting together some information on both topics for your June newsletter.
