I picked up a trio of Western Hogs that I would like to breed but I am not sure if they are ready to breed yet. I believe at least one of the females is but the other female and the male I'm not sure about. Around what weight would they attain sexual maturity for each gender? Not sure of ages since they were picked up at shows.

From what I've gathered, females need to be 200 grams

Thanks, sounds like I should be fine for next season.

Good luck! I'm hopeing my female is ready next season as well. We just picked up a second female at Havre De Grace this weekend...She's just an itty bitty thing, but they seem to grow so fast! :)

Actually 160 is fine on most females, but I personally know they can throw viable eggs from 90 grams up.

I did not do it but I know someone that did it successfully.

My females range from 140 - 875, most around the 400 gram range.

Thanks for the info.
