Re: Naming swine for breed papers

You should go to the national swine registry's website and fill out their online form. It is a little difficult to find so you will probably have to play around with it for a bit. I hope this helps.

Re: Newborn shaking head

I had a piglet that shook his head from birth. It turned out he had brain damage from lack of oxygen. I do not think it is an ear infection, but if he gets worse and the sore starts oozing puss or gets bigger I would consult a vet.

Re: Keeping white pigs white

Wash her as often as you can and prevent mud in the pen if possible. If her color is still not improved enough use "white out" it can be bought at sullivans supply. You may want to check the rules of your fair as it may be illegal at some shows.

Re: slopping my pig

I don't think their would be a problem. I've known people who have slopped their pigs from purchasing till fair time.

But I would ask hogdoc just to be sure. :|

Re: Boar ? On height

I'd say your boar won't have a problem covering the sow. I have a boar that will cover sows twice his size

Re: Keeper Gilt Size

I wouldn't expect her to pass on her small size. She may have had something when she was a piglet that caused her to be smaller, but it probably isn't genetic.

Re: Aborted litter?

Sometimes sows and especially gilts will seem pregnant and then just abort. Pigs are unpredictable and with unpredictability comes things that seem strange. Like your gilt not coming back into heat after she aborted. I would say your pigs body just hasn't fully recovered after aborting yet. If she d...
