Exciting news at Redhaven farms!!! Bertha is pregnant! In swine speak we say a bred gilt or sow is "settled". A gilt is a lady pig that hasn't had a litter of piglets, after that, they are called a sow. Getting Bertha settled was a challenge- but persistence paid off and she's due mid-July. Bertha is a 2014 pure bred Berkshire sow, and she's a "perfect 10" on the personality scale!!!
We bred her to a Berkshire Boar 23-1 (catchy name huh?) from NIBS in Idaho. Check out that hunk o' swine!
