One of the questions I get quite often is. What are the cuts in the ear for? This is the best way to explain it.

The right ear represents the litter number. So if it has a 3 notch and a 27 notch it would have come from the 30th litter.

The left ear represents the pig its self. If it has a 9 notch and a 3 notch it would be pig number 12.

So it would be the 12th pig born in the 30th litter.

                                                                                    Can you guess what this pigs notches are?
                                                                              If you guessed the 4th pig from the 4th litter your correct.
