Saying goodbye to one of our beginnings

Yesterday was bitter sweet.  We finally said goodbye to one of our first breeders, our first boar. It was time. He is replaced by a new nose,  smaller,  younger,  and hopefully able to perform his duties better.

This is a necessary part of farm life.

The size of the first boar  was nothing short of amazing.  As you can see in  the picture he was much too big to fit in the truck.  His live weight came in right at 700 lbs,  the single largest boar this butcher has ever processed.
