Once again our farm is graced with the presence of a passel of fine-looking piglets.

Our large black sow has officially redeemed herself, with a litter of nine healthy piglets, all of whom are still alive and kicking.


Our GOS sow had a tougher go of things, birthing five piglets (all of whom have survived) but displaying some worrying bleeding herself.

The vet came out and checked her over, so she’ll pull through.

One more sow to go for the spring litters, and then it’ll be a race to see if my replacement gilt is ready in time to breed for a fall litter with the rest of the sows.
