Thanks we are fine with not breeding her again just want her to get back to normal and start eating. Her temp has been in the 103’s the past 2 days and less discharge. Hoping we are close to the end. When we went to pick her up we saw that she was not being kept as promised and cared for so I do not...

Babies or no babies

Just wanting to get everyones option, I had 2 gilts I leant out for breeding with the promise of getting them back when I was ready (would not be until a year at the earliest) and pick of the litter.

Drooling

We have a show pig that started drooling and acting like his mouth is bothering him. He was hesitant to take his marshmallows last night, slacked off from eating and does not seem to have the energy he has had. This pig LOVES rubs and we had a hard time getting him to let us check the inside of his ...

Lazy legs

We have two pigs that hate each other and we keep them separated however, in the evenings we let them out to stretch their legs and someone supervises with a board. Unfortunately, the first time they fell in a fight they actually bumped into another pig and hurt him ( he squilled and held up his bac...

Laying around

I have a gilt that has been doing really good. Her and 1 other pig have been kept in separate pens but put together while their pens get cleaned and while I weigh out their feed. With the weather turning nice here and them getting along we put them together last week. I also added some sweets like 3...

Re: Weight gain and belly

They are getting 10-12 lbs a day. Fat cover is good on one and the other could use some more. They are getting 17 % protein fed.

Re: Long labor

I did see a few brown spots when she was discharging but thought it may be the poop from the babies. That could be it. the contractions you saw might just be from irritation with you checking all I can say is keep a close eye on her if she seems to get exhausted then I would definitely consider call...

Re: Long labor

She has not been exhausted from pushing bust since I tried to feel she has had a few big contractions. She looks pregnant to me and while she did get a little milk I never seen it "drop" like I was expecting

Long labor

I have a gilt that on 7/1 was at day 117 and I induced her. At 6:00 pm on 7/2 she had a light brown discharge. She has been having discharge ever since and it has changed to a more white color with a little chunks. Starting at 12:30 I tried to check to make sure nothing was blocking and was not able...

Advice

I am 5 months away from my first litter. I have worked on a hog farm producing market animals before so I do have experience with farrowing, but these are my show pigs and babies. Any advice as we approach the farrowing date? Anything you recommend to have on hand just in case. I want to be prepared...

Re: Head sideways

We had the vet come on out this morning. You are correct it is an ear infection caused from tagging last week. :evil: our animals are tagged by our extension agents for our spring show.
