"Feral hogs are the most prolific large, wild mammal in North America.
With adequate nutrition, a feral hog population can double in 4 months.
Breeding occurs throughout the year when conditions are favorable, and sea-
sonally when food supply and nutrient quality vary. Females begin breeding
at about 8 to 10 months old, or as young as 6 months if food is abundant.
Under favorable conditions, sows can produce two litters every 12 to 15
months, with an average of four to eight piglets per litter and a sex ratio of
1:1. Younger sows tend to have smaller litters, while an older sow may have
as many as 10 to 13 piglets. Piglets are weaned in 2 to 3 months. Drought
and food shortages can delay breeding and reduce the number of piglets
born, but feral hog populations recover quickly when conditions improve."
