Pigs are an excellent source of meat and can be treated as a 'walking larder' in preparation for winter, as they represent meat that will never rot. A pig costs 38 meat cuts (2 cuts and 2 wooden bowls - this information maybe dated since wooden bowls get downgraded in value; in Version 3.14 a pig costs about 42 torches), the same as a sheep or a ram.
When culled, it produces about 109 cuts (pounds) of meat, 3 pounds of skin and about 0.2 pounds of fat. The skin takes 1 day to be tanned, becoming leather. Small pigs can carry 79 lbs. Like their wild counterparts, pigs are more likely to try and fight back than other animals.
Wild boars can be found, and they are usually solitary, shy animals. Wild sows travel in moderately sized groups much like forest reindeer. Sows provide the same amount of meat, fat and skin as their domesticated counterparts while boar are noticeably bulkier with larger skins and meat second only to bear, although they are very rare. Both are more aggressive than most other prey animals, turning on pursuers unexpectedly, and can easily cause some nasty wounds or injure a dog if underestimated.
