I asked this question of someone who raises pigs for 4H and the answer I was told (and I would like to hear other people's comments) was.... how does this apply to wild hogs?

For our show hogs on good feed, we go from birth to show weight (250-270 lbs) in 165 days. When you are in the 150-250 range it will gain 2 lbs or so a day.

Depending on the food source, about 1 year in the wild.

True. If you take any notice of the hogs in your area, they will get bigger during deer season because of the feeders. That's just a 2 1/2 month period.The more food they have the bigger and faster they will grow. Remember that a hog is a eating machine. All it does is eat and make babies, nothing else.

Agree w/ SuperG -- pure eating machines with cast iron stomachs.  My answer was going to be, from the hog's perspective, as fast as possible.  Depends on food availabilty -- if you see them coming back to your feeder often, it won't take long.

We raised show pigs at the Boys Ranch.  The piglets would be verified in March and then shown in the second week of September. Three pigs were chosen from good stock and fed properly.  All three were too big at show time.

What we did was show the two gilts in the breeding class under a year old. They won!  The biggest was 357 lbs.  Born in February.  A wild pig will not gain that fast on any diet is my suppositon.
