It turned out that we needed to lower the board. It was about a foot off the ground. It should be about eight inches. It needs to be so low that there is no way that a momma could get back there. That includes a momma on her side scootching ...

Farrowing Hut looks to be about 6 ft X 12 ft. Is that about right?
The bumper board is against the back wall only? I've seen designs with the bumper board going all the way around the inside wall, so there's a little piglet hallway all the way around. It gives the sow something to lean against so that there's no way a piglet can get trapped between mama pig and wall. Minor stuff, really.
