When u wean the piglets does this throw the mother back into heat? I weaned some piglets around 5 weeks since they were all healthy and eating very well on their own. The sow left the pasture and went in the wooded enclosure with the boar. Should I be expecting more babies in 3 /3/3/?

Yes, weaning piglets stimulates the sow to have a heat cycle. You should have another litter on the way! I’m not sure how long it takes the sow to dry up. I will have to take note of that, next time, so I will know.
