How long before birth does the sow start to bag up and does anyone have a picture of the vulva just before farrowing as she is not due for another week and her vulva is quite tight and not very big so i know she is not expecting soon but would like to know what to look out for from pedro

Perhaps the best bit of advice I would give on this is to buy Wendy's book
I've been breeding for years now but still bought the book as, I'm sure many people will agree, you never stop learning where pigs are concerned and advice from other people or reading about their experiences is invaluable. You never know when it's going to come in useful. It's a great book and will answer all the questions you've asked so far and all the ones you haven't thought of yet!!!

I bought mine from Amazon, I've pasted the link below which will hopefully work, if not cut and paste it:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Small-Scale-Out ... =1-1-spell
If that doesn't work then just go to Amazon and type in Small Scale Pig Breeding Wendy Scudamore.
Good luck with the farrowing, I hope it all goes smoothly
