preterm labor

Postby abuchanan » Sun May 20, 2012 5:27 pm

We bought a gilt last month that was pregnant. Her birth month is September 2011. She just delivered six dead piglets. We wernt expecting piglets till next month at the earliest based on her dob and possible heat cycle at six months. The piglets looked very under developed. What would cause her to go into early labor. And is it normal for a first timer to have such a small litter. Never saw the placenta deliver but its been 3-4 hours since last piglet was expelled.
