Why is it

that our fall farrowings go better than our spring farrowings? Friday night, with a low somewhere about 31 degrees, one sow farrowed and has a nice litter of 6.

However the other sow seemed to be in standing heat this morning…which means that we’ve fed her for all these months…for nothing. My brother’s going to come and preg check her this week.

These sows are going, as soon as the piglets are weaned! We’ll start again with completely different gilts.
