Hi Ant, and welcome to the forum
I dont really know anyone in that area, although i do know there are people breeding pigs in the Yarra Valley. I often use farmstock.com.au or gumtree to sell and buy pigs. If these dont produce results then type "piglets for sale " into google.
Good luck

Cheers
Steve

Seadog, it's a pleasure to have you with us. I hope I am able to help. When you stuff meat into a casing and call it a sausage the "water weight" should be no lower than Aw0.96. Why? Because staphylococcus and Kocuria (aerobic bacteria) need the moisture to grow and as you know by now, these are th...
