Ward Lumber to host free Swine Night 

JAY — Ward Lumber is hosting a free Swine Night at their Jay Store location on Tuesday, March 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for anyone who is interested in raising pigs.

The guest speaker is Steve Schaefer from Adirondack Heritage Hogs. Schaefer has been raising heritage-breed hogs and piglets since 2005 in Lewis with his wife and three children. His whole family is involved in the business and they strive to raise healthy pigs with family-friendly demeanors.

Their mission is to help supply quality pork or piglets to their community so they can raise them on their own. This seminar will focus on advanced pig farming. Topics will include breeding, birthing, weaning, marketing and castration.

The event is free, and there will also be free pizza and refreshments. To register, go to or call Kim at 946-2110, Ext. 120.
