In this episode of the Modern Homesteading Podcast, Kelly and Troy McClung guest host again. The core of the discussion is how to raise hogs on your homestead for free or for profit. Kelly and Troy detail how they raise pastured pork on their homestead and how it is a valuable revenue stream to support their homesteading expansion endeavors.
They explain how you can turn a profit by raising 3 hogs and selling 2 of them to customers.
Troy breaks down his feed costs for the last year and explains how his hogs finished for processing.
All of this data is explained and the profit margin is illustrated.
