Sweetie with new piglets
Piglets are bursting out like buds all over the place. Our pig population shot up 25 today. Five more sows are looking like their ready to pop. They have begun nesting and lactating.
Sweetie, pictured above, is a sixteen titted sow descended from Blackie. She farrowed along the fence line in the south field so we simply wrapped some cattle panel around her next and one over with plastic bale wrap to create a quick private space and cover for her.
