Micro Pigs

I am looking to buy micro pig gilts, sows and boars in England and am finding it difficult as they are so expensive and a lot of breeders are only selling castrated boars. I am not interested in selling them on at stupid prices either. Is there anyone who can help me get started?

    Can I make a suggestion that you don't look for micros in the uk. Basically what is being bred here is utter rubbish and you should be looking for good quality stock to start with. Sweden has a better quality of mini pig, and I am sure other countries in Europe have similar, you just have to do your research. But I would stay well clear of uk micros.
