Hog Wild Specialties is owned and operated by Deb and Earl Hagman of Mayerthorpe, Alberta, Canada, with assistance from their children over the years, Jill, Greg, & Will. They started raising and marketing European wild boar in February of 1991. They consistently have about 300-700 animals of varying ages on site with access to numerous other farm raised animals from Canada. The animals are raised as naturally as possible with no immunizations or growth hormones. The animals’ diet is supplemented with minerals to ensure healthy animals. They are given products twice a year in their feed to control parasites. In the summer they naturally graze on pasture with access to a limited amount of grain while in the winter they are fed alfalfa hay, grain & silage. The farrowing sows are always fed some grain to ensure an adequate milk supply.
