Looking for a Boar Friend

Thu, 2016-07-14 13:57 -- Carole Soule

Our sows are looking for a boar friend and we think we've found the perfect match in, Bucky, a three year old Tamworth boar from Ossipee.  We have three breeding sows and will stagger their "dates" with Bucky.  That way we'll space out the birthdates for the piglets.  It's so much easier to manage piglets when they are born a few weeks apart.

Pig Roast and More

Wed, 2016-07-06 18:15 -- Carole Soule

Last week we had our first ever pig roast with a pig born on the farm in February on the coldest day of 2016. To keep the piglets alive I kept them briefly in our bath tub. Last week one of these babies, now 170 pounds, was the subject of our pig roast. The pork was amazing, the best I've ever had. Our guests said the same thing.

Lucky Little Heifer

The little brown heifer scooted across the field through a fence then back again. Clearly a newborn calf, we had to locate her mother. Brittany sniffed her then shoved the heifer away. The four other pregnant cows did the same. None of the pregnant cows looked like they had just given birth. So who's baby was this?

Willamina

The piglet was pulling herself towards her eight siblings who were huddled under the heat lamp. Earlier I was outside when I heard the squeal. Six hundred pound mamma pig, Sarah, had made a wrong move and stepped on her two pound baby who was now struggling across the floor of the pigpen. The baby squealed when I picked her up, her feet were cold and she couldn't walk.
