We had fifty sows. We turned a boar out with them in the pasture—some of them had pigs when they came in, some of them had pigs out in a hole in the woods, and some of the pigs were born in a straw pile in the winter. Some froze, some made it. ” Then the hog farming business began to change and when the sows looked like they were about to have babies, Steve would bring them in and put them in pens.
