There’s been a big push to get beef and sheep folks onto pig B and BIt is I said to a friend two or three years ago if the pig job collapses round here it will take the rural economy with it, so many have gone out of cattle/dairy and filled sheds with B and B pigs, then borrowed and put more sheds up to do more numbers, all for three outfits, two of which have pigs on 100+ farms and other probably 20-30. I heard from a feed rep the latter is cutting back numbers and serving notice on a fair percentage of units. I think it’s foolish for anyone to think they are so big that they won’t be cut loose if things get bad enough, and things keep getting worse can any of them stand the pain?
It’s not all it’s cracked up to be in my reckoning
Supposedly the selling point was no risk
Many have gone that way
