hello bin trying to look for two piglets that are gilts that have been born this month. am just trying to start my own herd up but no one is helping me out. I am near skipton really keen to start thanks james
Hi James seeing as it is only 5th jan I wouldn’t panic too much! Any pigs born in the last 5 days won’t be weaned ready to be sold for 6-8 weeks. Try the farming groups on Facebook. It’s a great place to buy and sell or check the BPA website for breeders local to you.
i was talking to a chap at Boston Spa last night who has a litter with 6 gilts i will send you the details later as i don’t have them to hand right now.
Also as Charlotte says patience is required lots of people farrowing as we speak most litters will be born in the next week to ten days so bide your time and make sure you get the right pigs for you, if you want to chat give me a call after 1pm today.
