Is it time for new fall piglets yet?

by | Sep 8, 2021

Hello friend!

If you’ve been a part of my virtual farm tribe for any length of time, you know how excited I get when new baby animals come to the farm. The number of exclamation points and little heart emojis per email take a sharp upward trend for sure!! 😍

But, yes, the first fall piglets arrived yesterday morning!!

It was some drama, let me tell you!

This mama was a first time mom, which generally mean they are freaking out and can’t figure why strange things are happening to their bodies. There was a lot of walking around and not a lot of feeding her babies going on…. 🤨  They also sometimes step on their babies, injuring them to varying degrees.  One didn’t make it last night due to this. 😫  Not surprising when babies are only a couple pounds each and mom is at least 300 lbs.

According to the recommendation of decades of experienced pig farmers, a tried and true method of relaxing stressed moms is some sort of alcoholic beverage.  I had some “supplies” on hand for this little lady….and it worked pretty well!

(Yes, not even kidding! 😂😂)

But luckily today, she seems to be getting the hang of it and I’ve seen her twice lying down and quietly feeding/snuggling them. Go new mom!  6 little ones are up and moving and healthy so far!

If you can handle the fact that your bacon was once cute, here’s a melt-your-heart video. 🥰

From all of us here at Piggery Run Farm,
with 2 feet or 4 feet,
we wish you a beautiful fall day! 😘
