Winter farrowing did not go well and between five sows I have nine babies. Lots of adjustments need to be made for next farrowing season. Main issue was having mixed age groups all together. And while I lost a lot of babies I think its for the best considering how rough this winter has been. I think if it was summer I wouldnt have lost nearly as many but with the cold and back to back storms it was very tough on the little ones. One thing I will say is only the strongest survived so these nine are very feisty!

That is tough, losing so many. I know you are on it and will make the necessary arrangements for your sows and babies. I have nothing but admiration for you. You have come far, overcome adversity and keep moving forward. Big hugs.
