Is there anybody on this board doing 30-40 sows semi confinement farrow to finish? I have been on this board for a number of years trying to figure out how to start raising some livestock. I am semi retired-65 (as some may remember) and have my grain farming up to 225 acres of wheat, soybean, and corn. My first career was in mangement and lived from Va to Ct to Indiana to Ilinois to Maryland, now live in Va.-just finished a round with Hirricane Sandy. I told my wife I would like to scratch an old sow behing the ears one more time in my life. I raised hogs in my 20s with Smidley houses and Luco finishing platforms. Some things you just love to do. I still don't know where to market them but am  getting old enough I have to do it now or forget it.
