CurlyT’s Enlarged Vulva
As a sow approaches her farrowing date her body prepares itself for releasing the piglets out into the world. One of the very visible changes is that her vulva will enlarge and soften to ease the passage of the soon to arrive newborn pigs. This photo was taken about a week ago and shows the beginning stage of loosening and enlarging. CurlyT will farrow soon.
