Raising Hogs

Asked August 29, 2018, 3:54 PM EDT

We are moving to the La Grande area this fall. We were wanting to find some land to purchase and I hope to raise hogs on pasture on the land. I was told it is too hot to raise hogs on pasture in that area of Oregon. Is that true and is there anyway I can set up my pasture for the hogs to survive the heat?

There are options for keeping pigs cool during hot weather. Even on the west side of Oregon, summer days can be too hot for pigs.

This topic would be best addressed with a phone conversation.
