What happened in the last episode of Escape to the Farm?
In the last episode, Kate introduced viewers to Sausage, a four-year-old breeding sow.
Kate said: “If you look at her midsection, you can see she is about to give birth any minute.”
Sausage had delivered 27 piglets in the past, and her current pregnancy would be her third litter.
Awful feeling when you think an animal’s in distress. She’s had litters before and had no trouble.
When she started giving birth, the second piglet in the litter got lodged in the birth canal. Kate stepped in to help, saving the day by pulling the piglet out herself.
With something clearly still wrong, they had to call in a vet for an injection that would hurry the process along, but he was busy on another farm. They had to give her the injection themselves.
Kate said: “Awful feeling when you think an animal’s in distress. She’s had litters before and had no trouble.”
Sausage delivered a third piglet on her own, but was still visibly suffering. Kate had to take action again, getting her arm inside “right up to the shoulder”.
In the end, the vet came and helped pull out the fourth and final piglet. He explained that Sausage’s issue was due to a problem with the muscle that should help her push.
