Raising Pigs for Profit Course
A complete step by step A to Z system to plan, market, and build a profitable pig enterprise. Built by a farmer for farmers just like you.
Interested in starting a livestock farm?
Don't have a lot of money to invest?
Don't have a lot of land?
If so, then pigs are a great starting point.
Pigs are high profit, low land use livestock which can be raised relatively fast (compared to cattle) with minimal equipment and sell for top dollar. Who doesn't like bacon?
But despite their advantages, most new farmers don't know where to start.

Topics include how to select the right breed of pig, where to buy them, what equipment you need to get started, production costs, how to select and price retail cuts and much more.
Everything is included on how to produce, price and sell pork. Nothing is left out!
You will have lifetime access to the following for yourself and anyone else in your immediate household...

Darby’s farming journey began in 2007 with just $600 and 50 broiler chickens on pasture.
Today the farm is producing nearly $200,000 in gross annual sales and provides a modest living for Darby, his wife and two children.
Darby successfully transitioned himself from the corporate world as a mechanical engineer into farming and this course is designed to help you do the same.
