A group of pregnant sows gather at a feeding trough at Penn State's Swine Education and Research Facility. The sows are due to give birth to their litters in early July. The facility keeps a herd of 65 sows and produces over 1,400 pigs a year to support teaching, research, and agricultural extension programs in offspring growth performance.
