We Got Milk! (pig milk)
Lois is due tomorrow. In my extensive reading (not experience), when you can express milk easily from a sow, it is 12-24 hours before she will farrow (give birth). I've been checking Lois at every feeding, plus other times during the day. At the evening feeding I expressed milk from her teat!!! Yeah!!! Piggies are on the way!!! I noticed today that she drank A LOT of water. That was my first indication something was different. I usually have to fill up her water 2 or 3 times, but today it was no less than 5. I guess she needed it for the milk!! Hopefully tomorrow I will have video of some cute.....er....soon to be yummy.....babies!!!
