Raising Backyard Pigs (webinar)

June 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

| Free

The spring of 2020 saw a tremendous increase in the number of feeder pigs coming into Maine. Many new pig growers decided to raise a few pigs to fill their freezer in the fall. UMaine Extension is sponsoring a Raising Backyard Pigs Zoom program on Tuesday, June 16, from noon–2 p.m. Register for this free program to receive the Zoom link and phone numbers to call into the program.

Prospective and beginning small-scale pork producers will gain a general understanding of what it takes to raise pigs in their backyard. This program will be led by Donna Coffin, UMaine Extension Professor, and Dr. Colt Knight, UMaine Extension Livestock Specialist.

Sponsored by University of Maine Cooperative Extension.
