I have had an email from Allie about her pot bellied sow,
my pig is haveing a litter of pot bellied piglets and last litter her milk didnt come in (acidental litter). i woke up and heard skweeling out side and i looked and piglets!!!! any way she is due for halloween and i realy dont want to bottle-feed 4-10 piglets. last time only one lived. the runt which was skinny at birth so bottle feeding started at 1 hour old. the others we didnt relize until later where eating hay. are there any ways to make sure that her milk comes in. (i'm only eleven and i have three younger brothers. they where crushed when they woke up in the morning and there 3 favorite piglets had died when they where sleeping) i have been giving her tons of veggies. will that help or should i do something else? i dont like staying up till 5 a.m. and then getting up again at 6 a.m. please help/ allie
Any advice? I will go and check my pig keeping books.
