This is my first year raising pigs, and i dont know a whole lot about them. I have yet to get them, as their breeder keeps changing the date. I think they're at least 8 weeks old. Today I was able to visit them, and they all looked weak/sick. They had what looked like purple ink on their rear ends, and the mother also had some inside her ear. The farm owner did not have time to come to the pig pen with me so he gave me permission to peek at them on my own. Their pen was also quite due for cleaning...I did a little googling and kept seeing "pmws". What questions should I be asking the farmer? If the piglets have been sick should I not buy them? If I get piglets from anyone, are there vaccines I should be getting for them? (Pmws or not) I may just be paranoid but I've had a weird gut feeling prior to me noticing them seeming weak. Any advice would be appreciated!
