Farrowing date ear notching seasons
Posted by Jack Wall on November 27, 2019, 3:10 pm
We have had some confusion evidently when the preferred ear notching farrowing seasons are. The approved farrowing seasons for ear notching in sequence starting with litter #1 is January 1 and July 1. With each of these months listed is the correct farrowing date season. There appears to be some intentional abuse of these dates with too many(in my opinion) litters born in the month of December that have a 1 litter put in their litter ears. Please adhere to the listed procedure. December farrowing begins Sunday. jlw
