Hi All. I am a first time breeder. My sow is about to have her first litter. What is the general market value for selling pedigree wearers for either breeding/pets/meat. I have had a few enquiries and I want to be realistic with them. Thank you 😃

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the answer is 'it depends'.

Rather than thinking of things that way round I would encourage you to think about how much they cost to you, and what price you need to sell them at for it to be sustainable. Many breeders have a price below which they will not sell because they would prefer to keep a piglet and raise it themselves - and that price varies from person to person.

It also depends whether or not you have the means/want to keep the litter. Otherwise, Simon is spot on imo.
