swine farrowing

Asked July 30, 2014, 5:57 AM EDT

We have a 1.5 year old first time sow. She is at 119 days. I injected 2çc Lutalyse. Each time 36 and 24 hours ago. She doesn't seam to be in distress and is eating and drinking. She is not nesting yet and only a small amount of colostrum can be expressed. How long is too long before seeking out a C section with our
vet. The ultrasound about half way showed rib cages and she has not cycled.

Thank you for submitting an Ask an Expert question. Currently, MSU Extension does not have a state level swine specialist, however we do have agents working in Montana counties that may be able to assist you. Can you let me know what county you are in, and we can get someone to assist you?
