Spring Cleaning

13 Mar

By this weekend our first sow should kick off our spring farrowing with her first litter.

We’re still not setup for farrowing out in the field in this (very wet, muddy) weather so they’ll be farrowing in the barn.

This, of course, requires cleaning out the barn.  All the old dirty bedding has got to go to make a nice clean dry spot for a whole passel of piglets to come into the world.  With all the old bedding hauled off, and the pen scraped down to bare concrete, I sprinkled a little DE all around and let it dry out for a few days.

Soon it’ll get some new clean straw and a very pregnant pig.
