On Sunday I sold 6 of my 17 Saddleback weaners. I had weaned 8 of the piglets on Saturday and then Sunday morning was spent tagging the piglets before the 6 weaners where chosen by their new owners.
One lady had bought Saddleback weaners from me before and fattened the weaners. She enjoyed the pork, sausages and bacon so much that she wanted to get another two
weaners for fattening. As you can imagine I am delighted, what better testimony than a repeat customer. She chose 2 gilts, one with a saddle and the only one of the 17 that didn’t have a full saddle that I had been calling Blacky. She was a lovely curious piglet, the only one that had ventured out of the pig barn when I opened the door. I will miss her.
The other couple came from Bradford and wanted gilts as they may decide to breed but where unsure. They arrived before we had tagged the piglets and watched the tagging. I don’t think it put them off as they happily took the piglets.
So the 8 weaners are now down to 2 and later this week the other 9 Saddleback piglets belonging to Cagney will be weaned, tagged and ready for sale.
