Pig reproduction in Seasons

Post by Perbjorkhem » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:19 am

Hi fellow farmers.

I am trying to understand the reproduction of the animals in Season.

If I have 20 pigs will more of them get piglets than if I had 10 pigs?

Thanks.

They all will get piglets. Not the same time but after a while they (the two female breeds) all will. And the piglets will after they became fertile get new piglets. They are acting like rabbits. Keep an eye on your pig-pen. It will be maxed out almost emediately...

Thanks. Good to hear. What do you mean by the "female breeds"? Aren't all female?

When you purchase from the dealer you only purchase female pigs but when they reproduce You will get some male piglets. I just did a season with 1 pig to see how many it would reproduce and i got 10 piglets from 1 pig during each birthing. That 1 pig gave me 20 piglets in 1 season

Two of the breeds are female for breeding and two are male for fattening

I had a couple more give birth now and it seems to be between 6 to 10 piglets each birthing.
