These pigs will not be overlaid or injured as long as they remain within this area, As the sow farrows, the pigs should be dried off, the navels painted with iodine and the pigs placed under the heat lamps. In this post* tion they can easily nurse the sow and still have access to plenty of heat. The amount of heat can be regulated by raising or lowering the lamps. On very cold nights, it might be well to place an extra lamp over the pigs. These pigs remain thrifty only as long as they get plenty of milk. Feed the sow a well-balanced ration that will help her produce plenty of milk. Remember that sow's milk is low in iron so it must be supplied to the pigs in iron pills or some other form to prevent them from developing anemia. A creep-fed prestarter can be supplemented the needed iron. Such a ration will also cut down on the amount of milk needed by the pigs and will make it easier to switch the pigs to feed. Pigs should be vaccinated for cholera and erysipelas at 6 to 7 weeks of age. The money you spend for vaccination is well-spent. Failure to vaccinate can result in a disease outbreak which can wipe out an entire herd in a matter of days, This will eat up all the profits earned over the past years.
