Spring piggers

Our spring piglets are here! One sow had 12, and one had 14. I think they each still have 10 at this point, which are really good numbers considering we farrow outdoors in large huts with no heat lamps. Good, good mama’s!

      You got it, Kris! You can come pick him up in another month :)

      Every year older they get we keep talking about saving back some gilts and getting rid of these mama’s… but they raise such nice litters we just can’t do it yet!

      Thanks Mark! I will definitely check him out. (I had to turn off comments in older posts because I was getting so many spam comments)
