Ok, so they aren't really dwarfs but they are 1.1 mid '01 that are the size of an early '04. I have had these myself for about 3 years now and have seen MINIMAL growth in them. My male is maybe 18 inches and bout as big around as a penny. My female is closer to 22 inches and a little bigger around than a nickel. Both eat like pigs but they are just incredibly small. Most western hogs that I have seen at this age are at least 30 inches and as big around as a half dollar. Any Ideas?? I can't really figure it out.

Thanks,

some hogs just grow a different rates I purchased several hogs last year and some are already breeding size and some are no where near it. They have all ate on the same schedule and keep at the same temps. Hogs just seem to vary in growth. ---Larry
