The total cost of raising the pigs, including purchase, milk replacer, feed and slaughter came to $550.18.  With a total meat return of 230 lbs the total cost is $2.39 per pound of meat.  This definitely worked out in our favor given the cost of pork currently.  Plus it was a great family experience and the children got to learn a lot about raising our own food.
