From a gilt litter. All 6 pigs were born rolly polly fat. This one was found dead away from nest.
My vet got some amusement from the size !
Thought I would share.
What do you think, genetics, feed??

    Can't see pics, but a low litter is cause by pure or cross, age a mating and how you have feed her during this period, so more than the 2 factors.

    What a massive piglet. I guess too much good feed. Once the piglets are fully formed all they do is grow. Mum will have had trouble no doubt delivering those.

    Wow, that is a massive pig, I would have thought it were older, but sad to hear it was stillborn. I can imagine mom didn't have a fun time with the labor, was this her first time or have all of her litters been this size?
