Pig Work: castration and weaning

On Friday Bogo came over with Nana to give me a hand castrating our latest piglets. Always a noisy job but we got it done and the boys were impressed with how we have our farrowing pen setup.

On Saturday we took Babe away from her piglets. Bogo had noticed that one of her teats was looking a bit infected and mentioned we need to cut the teeth from our piglets next time.

In terms of next time Bogo also thought Gypsy was well on her way to having her next litter of piglets. Now I just need to decide if Diesel is ready to meet Barney. How old is she again? Lucky we have this blog.

  1. More notes. Gypsy was weaned on Wednesday April 25, 2012. Add 4 months and more piglets, all going well, will be here sometime in late August / early September.
