We would love insight on what may have happened. Does this look like a prolapse? She still has a little blood - maybe 12 hrs post farrowing. Her shelter had blood smeared about butt height over the walls. A few of her piglets have lacerations, and we found one dead one which looked like it was stepped on. There may be others under the straw. She has 9 alive at this point with at least two with cuts. She is careful laying down and caring for them at this point. I guess she will need to meet the butcher post weaning? Anyone have any idea what happened? Did she thrash around while farrowing to injure the piglets? She made her nest in the shelter but had access to pasture. For over a week, she has been breathing heavy. Also - noticed the piglets have mustard colored stool. Our other litter did not noticeably have this. Thoughts? Sorry to turn to you guys for help, but we are wiped. Thank you for any help you can provide. In the pics you can see the blood on the walls which dripped down (newly built shelter) and the mustard stool on the sow.
