Synopsis:

July 2007

Preparations are underway for the next lot of piglets and in the meantime we sample some lovely homegrown gammon

 

 


More damp weather this month, but work goes on. As we prepare for more piglets in August, we've been moving the remaining few pigs around.

So far, we have separated the two weaner boars from the sow and remaining gilt (so as to avoid any unnecessary accidents), but the next step is slightly more difficult.

We will need to separate the gilt and sow so that the sow can farrow in peace, however, to do this we will need to put up a new fence around an unused ark (the last fence has seen better days).

Let's hope for better weather next month.

On the plus side, Blitz has started to recover from whichever allergy he was suffering from, and the gammon (pictured) from our boar is proving to be fantastic!
