Fostering suggestion. Note insufficient farrowing crates currently available.
Over first 48 hours litter size and weight stabilised with all sows having no more than 11.
Following weaning day
On a weaning day move 10 sows into additional farrowing accommodation. Move 7 to 10 day old piglets onto these sows, one per litter, the smallest piglet. Leave for 2 weeks minimum on these sows.
Do not move any other piglets, sort out additional problems at weaning. Note the PRRS implications of piglets over 18 days of age.
