Cable Creek Farm Welcomes Piglets | Pets
The piglets of Cable Creek Farm had their first peek of the world Wednesday morning. The farm welcomed over a dozen young ones to a life of pastures neighboring a llama, a milk cow and two hyper dogs.
We stopped by the farm to find Beth Tysdal, owner, sporting her Carhartt work clothes, fussing with two litters of piglets from two new mothers.
This is the first litter for each mama pig. One isn’t taking it too well with the constant cries. She already killed one piglet by stepping on it accidentally. Those babies have been put in the care of the other mother for now. It’s tough work being a new mom.
Another piglet was rejected by the mother so Tysdal is bottle feeding her inside her farm home with milk from her new cow, Elsie.
Before we left the farm, we saw the father pig hanging around the shed housing the babies. That’s where he was sleeping until he was kicked out for maternal purposes.
