A Watched Sow Never Farrows

It seems I am spending a lot of time these days staring at sow udders (yes, swelling – larger each day), squeezing sow teats (Pearl has been secreting milk for a week now, Cora not yet) and examining bedding for signs of excessive fluffing. Waiting for piglets to arrive is nerve-wracking! It’s good to be on hand at farrowing time to minimize squishing of newborns, but those sows don’t always provide details of their planned delivery times!
