Re: daffodil bulbs

Daffodil/narcissus bulbs are definately poisonous to humans. Pigs are often used in medical models as the best reflecting what happens to humans, so vice versa would work too.

Re: starting with pigs

Hi, bet you are away with this now but the accidental smallholder has a good brief introduction and some useful costings on what it took to raise 2 Tamworth weaners, keep and butcher them.
