Sorry Austin, its just you and I, no one wants to talk to us or post about hogs. Very very odd.

About your question, I would not and do not brumate neonates.

In nature, around here, as along as food is available, the neonates are active and feeding. Even if they weren't, there is not need to cool them, unless your tired of them and want a break.

With adults, I put them in a cool room if I bromate them, which this year I am going to with a couple of females. I think by the end of the year. As of now, my adults are feeding and growing, so its not advisable to stop that. My possible breeders are all young first time females.

Going by the advice here, one is almost 300 grams, so that one is large enough, another almost 200 grs. It should be that magic 200grs by the end of the year, and the last one is about 180grams. May wait on that one. Best wishes
