My sister's pigs look enormous and disgusting. But I'm sure once all the mud gets washed off that they'll be delicious :) They have four hogs that have been ready for a little while except they've had to worm them a few times. I'm not sure on all the specifics, but I guess you can't eat a pig if you've given them worm meds. But according to a few people I know, you can still eat a pig if it has worms. Maybe there's just the ewww factor of eating an animal with worms?
