“Here at Meadowbank we have 10 sows each producing 2 litters of piglets a year each which we sell as weaners. All our sows are crossed to a Pedigree Pietrain boar to produce lean, fast growing piglets. The piglets are weaned at 6 weeks of age and sold at 7/8 weeks when we are happy they are thriving without their mom. All pigs are tagged to comply with current legislation and movement licences are arranged. You must hold a CPH number”

The sows we cross with the Pietrain baor are:

  • Oxford Sandy and black
  • Saddleback
  • Welsh
  • Tamworth
  • Large White x Pietrain
  • Pietrain x Oxford Sandy and Black
  • Saddleback x Pietrain

Pure Pietrain Pigs:

We also have 2 birth notified, pedigree Pietrain sows which means we have young breeding boars and gilts for sale at most times or at worst can advise when we will next have some available. We also sell the weaners from these sows not good enough for breeding as fattening pigs.

Prices:

Prices reflect market trend at the time but a 7/8 week old weaner is usually £35 to £40 with discounts available for 5 pigs or more.

Pietrain breeding pigs are price on application.
