Ben bottle feeding piglet – Sirus and Romula supervising
Piglet fix for people in need… Bottle raising piglets is very hard. Piglets need to be fed about every two hours, around the clock for the first few days to a week. Then they’ll start eating out of a tray. Getting colostrum that first day or two is critical. Keeping fluids in them is critical. Keeping them warm is critical. Sows are much better at this job than humans. If at all possible it is better to graft a piglet onto another sow.
Romula, the young puppy in the picture did her first pig herding today – rounding up five pigs, holding, cutting. Impressive given that she is so young. The instincts are strong with young Romula.
