Yeah, it appears that Mr. Tumlinson has quit buying, or at least can't be easily reached.

Besides the buyer colt45 mentions above, there are a couple of guys who have posted flyers around Lee County (although they're in Elgin, which is either Bastrop or Travis County) saying they buy live hogs.

Question - do they buy only boars? How about sows, big or small?

It's my understanding that there is a minimum weight, maybe 80 Lbs, although it's been known to vary. A call to a local buyer will get you accurate info, and they can also tell you what they're paying. Typically they pay so much per pound, and sometimes a bonus for each hog exceeding a certain weight. Those numbers change periodically.

AFAIK they buy both boars and sows.

I met Steve about a week ago. He's still there and still buying hogs. He lives where 430 makes a 90 turn to the north and has a black metal pig by the street. I have property near by.

I'm curious where all these hogs eventually end up? I mean what do the hog buyers do with all the hogs?

The guy that I sell to will pay for anything 50 pounds>, boar or sow.
He said that he sells to processors and to licensed game ranches.

Tumlinson @ Dime Box still buys. The phone number on the State list is incorrect.

Steve told me that most of the meat goes to Europe and Asia.
