Ear Notching

Since pigs grow quickly and become large animals, which often lose their identifcation tags, we ear notch all our pigs in addtion to tagging them. This enables us to ensure that we can easily identify each animal in our herd and keep accurate records. The pig's right ear identifeis which litter number it came from and it's left ear assigns it a number. Each area of the ear is associated with a different multiple, which when added are the litter and pig number for that hog. For example a pig with two low and two high notches on the lower right ear and a notch on the upper left ear would be 8-9, making it pig number 9 from litter number 8.

Cuts of Meat

Pigs provide much of the world's meat human consumption and there's certainly no shortage of types of meat from pigs or ways to eat it. We may be a little partial, but we believe grain fed hogs provide our customers with high quality pork with a taste that cannot be matched in any supermarket.
