Piglets bite the sow (mother) in their fight to get hold of one of her teats. The pain caused by this disturbs the sow causing her to get up and prevents her young from feeding.
Piglets bite the sow (mother) in their fight to get hold of one of her teats. The pain caused by this disturbs the sow causing her to get up and prevents her young from feeding. The cuts to the sow's udder also allow germs to infect the udder. Piglets can also bite and injure another one in their fight to grasp the teat. This issue can be solved to a simple practice of clipping the teeth.
The piglet's teeth should be cut as soon as possible after its birth. The teeth can be cut when the pig is only 15 minutes old. The sow and her young should be separated for as short a time.
