Taking the plunge...and a question

I'm about to embark on my first journey into Hogland. I'll be ordering a 9" male western today (provided everything adds up when I talk to the breeder later). I remember catching easterns in the woods back home when I was just a youngin'! I can't wait for the new baby...I could see myself getting several hoggies eventually (I currently own 0.2 BPs, 1.0 amel corn, and 1.0 BCI)

I've done quite a bit of research on keeping hogs, so I pretty much know what to expect, but I haven't been able to find anything on their growth rate. He's an '01, and only nine inches long, but they say he is feeding on fuzzies. I know there's a huge difference in girth, but my little corn boy is 14" long and only eating small pinks! But anyway, the question: How much length will he put on per month/year until he reaches full growth? When do hogs usually reach their full size?
