Black wattles on their way!

Finally! After 2 years of waiting.... we are back in the pig business!

We tested our oldest large black sow and sure enough.... pregnant! The red wattle boar did his job. The result will be a heritage cross.... black wattles!

The little ones are due either april or may. Pork will be available in december.

We are very excited to see little piglets running around again.  They are going to be soooo cute!

Another first is the pregnancy tester itself. We use an ultrasound device that alerts to the presence of amniotic fluid. There is either a positive or negative tone. For 2 years I've only heard the negative tone and actually wonderd if it was working. But now we know it was right all along!
