Seems a little high for both and especially for the whole hog.

I agree it's high for the whole hog, but processed that's about average.

Anything under $2.00 a lb is pretty good. Dressed, I'd pay 2.75

Those are good prices. Pig here in WA is 25 cents a pound higher.

Good prices as well. Our area is harder to get stuff like pork shoulders. Everything has to be a special order. Can't wait to get to Texas.

So it's $2.75 dressed and another $2.75 for processing the way you want?

NO $2.75 /lb dressed weight ...includes processing thats it ...or $1.00/lb hoof weight and $50 processing fees but those are 500-800 lb hogs
