Farmer Nigel is busy preparing for a series of new arrivals this week at Cannon Hall Farm.  Four sows are expecting to give birth, the first being Wendy who has 16 lovely Piglets that were born on Tuesday.  Nifel who looks after all the pigs is especially fond of Portley (his favourite pig!).  Portley is due to give birth today, Friday 24th July and Nigel is hoping for a bumper litter.  Nigel said “The reason we farrow several pigs at once is so that if one has lots of piglets and another does not do so well then we are able to cross foster, so in the end they all end up with a good amount of piglets.”
