Potentially lonely gilt?!

Post by jenhix » Sat Feb 05, 2011 7:27 pm

Quick question, I'm thinking of breeding towards the end of the year from one of my two gilts. I was just wondering if the one that I don't send to the stud will get lonely at all? If so what would people advise to ease this?

i take lots of sows to stud and some worried owners bring both pigs along and just have the one covered, although some will leave the other home alone. they invariably say that the one left at home has been absolutely fine!
its usually the owners that miss the pig rather than the other pig :D
