Examples from the Web for farrowing
The brood sows are placed in separate pens at farrowing time and watched carefully when giving birth to the pigs.
In ordinary cases this is not necessary, the farrowing of a litter of pigs is a simple and natural operation.
One of the chief causes of trouble with the farrowing sow arises from the sow not having been allowed to take sufficient exercise.
