You're going to eat a boar?  Even if you castrate him and feed him for a while, I still think that might be kinda gross except sausage...  I don't KNOW this, just speculation.

We did a lot of AI work after having to deal with boars for a while.  It is nice because you're able to get some dynamite bloodlines.  Sort of a pain in the butt, but easier than feeding, dealing with and caring for a boar.


IMO the only downside to boars is the aggressiveness.  Same with bulls.  Taste-wise - nothing to gripe about in my experience.

I cut a boar one time that I thought only had one nut.  We raised him for ourself to butcher.  At about 5 months old he started mounting the other pigs we where raising him with.  We talked to a lot of people and everyone said no big deal butcher him and it will be fine.  So that is what we did.  The slaughter guy found a deformed nut that didn't drop.  When we got it back from the butcher I tried to fry some pork chops and the smell about made me puke.  It was a strong boar smell that you will smell when a boar is getting ready to breed.  We thought that the bacon and sausage would be better but it was the same.  I could not bare to smell it being cooked.  And there is no way you could get me to eat it.  I have also bought store bought pork chops a time or two that had that same boar smell when being cooked.  I stay away from boar meat.
