Boar Breeder Pigs

(Additional pictures coming soon)

Our entire breeding herd receives an annual health check by an accredited USDA licensed veterinarian. The examination includes a full health assessment of each individual breeder pig, body conditioning evaluation & scoring. Furthermore, a verification of each pig’s measurements is also conducted, including, height, length, circumference, girth and weight. A signed & dated veterinarian record of certification documenting the results of the health checks are kept on file at our facility.

We have selected size categories such as Mini Oink 1/2/3/4 as “language” to describe the size classification of our herd’s offspring. As miniature pig breeders it is necessary to identify breeding pig sizes in order to be honest with our clients and not mislead them about the expected adult size of their prospective miniature pig.

BEWARE, don’t be fooled by deceitful marketing tactics used by some pig breeders… labels such as nano, micro, pocket, dandie, pixie, teacup and toy are often used to make buyers believe that the piggy they are purchasing will remain that piglet size forever! NONE of those names represent a particular pig breed, nor will any mini pig fit in a teacup, purse or pocket once fully mature!!! It is nearly impossible for any breeder to guarantee the precise size that a piglet will have once they reach adulthood (3-5 years old).

At Oink, Oink, Mini Pigs we do NOT guarantee weight, height or size of any piglet/pig at maturity. What determines the weight and size of a mini pig at maturity is not based solely on genetics. A healthy and well balanced diet, lifestyle and daily exercise regimen play a major part in the development and mature size of miniature pigs. These determining factors are impossible for us to enforce once they leave our care, therefore guaranteeing mature size inconceivable.

 

Mini Pig Size Categories & Age Classification

Size

Mini Oink Category 1: 14 inches tall and under

Mini Oink Category 2: Over 14 inches tall – Up to 16 inches tall   

Mini Oink Category 3: Over 16 inches tall – Up to 18 inches tall   

Mini Oink Category 4: Over 18 inches tall – Up to 20 inches tall   

Age

Juvenile (J): Pigs under 16 months of age.

Adolescent (A): Pigs 16 months to 5 years old. May have not reached full maturity yet,

but have reached appropriate and acceptable breeding age.

Mature (M): Pigs aged 5 years or older.

 

*NOTE: Studies have shown and concluded that the best indicator when estimating what a piglet’s mature size will be is based on the age, height and length of the adult parent pigs.
