As our Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs were about to farrow, we made sure all of the outbuildings had some nice fresh straw in them for the little piglets. However, when the time came, both of our sows thought they would just have those pigs out in the pasture in the shade. (Sounds like a good idea). One sow was not too keen on us messing with her babies. The other one couldn’t care less. Daughter in-law helped with some routine checking yesterday. Looks like we have a bunch of boars. We will be selling all of our gilsts as they are related to our Dudley and our sows now.
