Just a reminder to prospective breeders to plan ahead.
This last month or so i have taken a lot of phone calls from people wanting to use my boar immediately (one at 10pm last nite!![:(!]) This is not possible as he’s usually booked and busy doing what comes natural to him. You must remember to plan ahead, your lady pig has roughly a 6month turnround, approx 4mths pregnant and 2months rearing her litter then she can go back to the boar. I am already booking a boar for September for my next lot of Januaries as i want to use a particular boar. Watch your gilts/sows seasons and then try and plan accordingly especially if you need to hire or take your lady to B&B. Good boars are always in demand especially in regions where they are few and far between. So plan plan plan![:)]
