Sow delivered early?

Post by Mightymac » Wed Jan 01, 2020 8:49 am

I have a sow that farrowed 7 days early she has no signs of being ill and I’m positive of her due date just curious of any possible cause. Thanks

Not sure other than similar results are possible in humans. How were the piglets in terms of size and viability? What was the size of the litter?

PAC the 7 piglets looked to be normal size.

7 days early is possible but usually results in underdeveloped pigs that struggle to survive. I had a gilt once delivered at 109 days and was able to wean 4 of 7 born.
