They're lovely friendly docile pigs[and they taste great] if you get fed up with them! But i don't think you will pigs are highly addictive.

I breed Oxford Sandy & Blacks, In my view they are the best breed out there! Friendly easy to manage, nicely marked and as gavo says taste great! We will have litters in the spring, we in Nottinghamshire so not a million miles away!

Positive replies, I think I have made a good choice!
If I cant find any nearer home, I will have to come to Nottinghamshire, is it acceptable to transport piglets in a crate in a van or does it need to be a livestock trailer?
