Default Hog Rut?

Do they have one? When is it? Im curious because I see the sow in estrus stuff a lot. Is it in different times of the year in diff states? If so I hunt around the LA/MS border.

Usually in the wild, they produce 2 litters a year with up to 10 to 12 piglets each time.


Gestation - The 113 to 116 day period when the sow is pregnant from breeding until farrowing.
3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days.

Heat - Refers to the estrous period for the sow. The first estrous normally occurs 3 to 5 days after the pigs are weaned.
Weaning is usaually over in 12 to 14 weeks.

When a sow is in heat, her Vulva is twice it's size.

I don't know why, but it bothers me that you know that.

In order to learn how to castrate, you have to cut alot of nuts!!!.........50yrs of observation!!!!

You ought to see mecastrate roosters. Have you ever castrated a rooster?

I've done some research that says middle of the winter and middle of the summer are the hottest times, but it can be anytime. Where I hunt, it seems to be Feb. and Sept. You'll notice you see more Boars hanging with the sows at certain times of year than others. The boars usually live a solitary life except when the girls are ready. I ahve a few different sow in heats for sale on my site if you want to check them out.

Of course TC, all the sows don't get bred at the same time.


Gestation - The 113 to 116 day period when the sow is pregnant from breeding until farrowing.
