Friends, today am a Happy Pig Farmer.
7 Days ago I got a fantastic surprise on my farm, an expectant Sow broke all records and Farrowed a Record Breaking 20 Piglets.
The Largewhite Sow comes from a superior lineage of Prolificity and excellent maternal care. Her previous farrowings produced 15 piglets each.
Over the years I have been able to establish in my Female Lines the following unique attributes:
Farrow without assistance. I have never ever had a piglet stuck in a Sow during farrowing.
Excellent weaning rate. 80% of farrowed piglets survive till weaning
High litter sizes. I get an average of 15 piglets from the second farrow.
The record breaking Sow is currently on a Lactation diet of Candies, Milk and PKC for the next 2 weeks after which she will be switched to a better ration to help her cope with the huge demand from the Piglets.
