Well the way i see it how many people have livestock today? and how many more guys would you lose by having to raise them all outdoors? And how many pigs can a guy take care of right now and still farm? I know of one guy that has 4 1200 head barns thats 4800 head of hogs he can raise them easily im guessing if he had to raise them all outside thats all he would be doing and then some you still need automatic feed system to get them all fed or you would be filling feeders all day
We had trouble with cattle at -30 temps i cant imagine trying to keep hogs warm
I know its possible to raise hogs outside but not nearly at the numbers were rasing in confinements
