It would be hard for mevto spend that much time and effort on an animal and then sell it for slaughter. I admire the people that can.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Most people dont realize just how smart hogs are.  The day we took him to fair I tried to get him to slop down a gallon of cheese whey with cake batter mixed in. he was so close to the 220 required to sell I didn't want to take a chance that he would be light.     He would have no part of it.  When we got him in his show stall he wouldn't eat or look at me for 2 days.  If I tried to force him to look up he would have a fit.
