Swine & Small Ruminants (Sheep and Goats)
The swine operation is a farrow to finish program that utilizes an enclosed farrowing-nursery unit and a modified open-front confinement finishing facility. The ration is primarily a corn-soybean meal mix balanced for amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. The average size of the sow herd is 60 head and approximately 800, 250-pound hogs are marketed annually.
The sheep flock consists of approximately 40 head of purebred Suffolk cross ewes. Lambing takes place in January and February with the lambs being marketed as early in May and June as possible. About 45, 100-pound lambs are produced annually.
