How much back fat should a pig have?

Depending on breed and frame size of the pig, most animals will achieve the desired level of back fat (10th rib fat) or finish (0.6 to 0.8 inches) and live weight (260 to 280 pounds) between five to six months of age. Gilts tend to grow a little slower than barrows, but are usually leaner.
