Happenings from the Meadow 3/13/2010
Jeffy, Hardy and John spent the day working in the garden. Peas are in the ground.
Pictured here, are some brand new baby pigs snuggling up in their nesting box. The pigs have a box with a heat lamp to help keep them warm the first week of life. The can go in and out of their nesting box to get with the sow and nurse. After the first couple of weeks, they will head out to pasture. We had 3 sows have pigs this week. One of the sows, it was her first time. She had a rough labor and seven of her pigs were stillborn. But she has two very nice piglets.
One sow had 12 and one sow had nine pigs.
