How big are fully grown micro pigs?
Firstly we must accept that Science has yet to find a way of predicting the EXACT eventual adult size of human offspring so it should go without saying that micro pig breeders, like pedigree dog or other animal breeders, could never guarantee the EXACT height a piglet will grow to.
Putting exceptions like giants and dwarfism aside, a reputable micro pig breeder can explain, and indeed should show you, exactly what to expect regarding the future adult size of your piggy.
Micro, mini or tea cup are all names for the same thing, miniature pigs.
These miniatures should always be much smaller than the Worlds Smallest Domesticated breeds of pigs like the Kunekune or Pot Bellied pig hence the different names given to them.
Micro pigs are ‘Micro’ when compared to normal pigs however the majority of people just don’t realise how big pigs can get due to most pigs becoming Pork at such an early age. The large Pink pigs you see on most farms are pretty much piglets themselves as slaughter weight of about 200 lbs is reached at around 16 weeks of age!
The largest pig recorded was called ‘Big Bill’ who weighed in at 2552 lbs. He was 5ft tall and 9 feet long!
The Typical Farm pig
A typical farm pig can weigh well in excess of 700 lbs and be over 7ft in length.
