We've raised pigs in the past. They eat alot and are messy and really do smell. That does not bother me-I live on a farm and the scent of manure in the morning is just part of life.

Every year my brother and uncle each have a pig roast. What they do is just go to a livestock auction about a week before their respective pig roasts and buy a hog that is ready to slaughter. Having premade arrangements with the butcher, they go straight from the auction barn to the slaughter house. The small scale producers who sell at the auctions are unlikely to have used hormones or anything so it's a safe bet the meat is good. There is no feeding (we have enough to do) or cleanup at all.

Just a thought. That'll let you keep a spot for your one large animal for something else that may come along.
