I'm hoping that some of you experts can help me out. Raising the pigs went well enough. However, I've run every calculation I can think of, and we're pretty much going to lose money every time we do it and that's even after processing the pigs at home by ourselves. The meat does taste better, and we know how it was raised which feels good, but it's still cheaper to buy pork from the store. We're not big into chicken meat, so that rules raising them out. Which farm animal is the best value to raise in order to provide the family with fresh meat?
