1st Litter of Mulefoot Pigs!!!

A few days ago we had our first litter of Mulefoot Piglets!  These were born on June 6th to our Sow Della.  She farrowed 7 piglets and is being a great Mother.  Here’s another picture of the event:

Update – exactly one week later Bella farrowed 7, and one day after that Ella farrowed 6.  All mothers are doing well.

  1. Where did the sow farrow? In the field or in the barn?

  2. All of our Sows farrowed in the field. No difficulties with this at all. Karla kept wanting to build them a shelter, but I procrastinated on purpose long enough to let the Sows take care of themselves, and they did wonderfully.
