How do pigs age?

Pigs live through 6 main life stages:

  1. From birth to 12 months – baby pig (a piglet)
  2. From 1 year to 3 years – juvenile pig. Females are called "sows" and males - "boars", "swines" or "hogs"
  3. From 3 years to 8 years – young adulthood
  4. From 8 years to 12 years – mature adulthood
  5. From 13 years to 15 years – senior pigs
  6. From 16 years and older pigs are considered elderly

With a natural life expectancy from 15 to 20 years, pigs live from 74 to 94 years in human age. If you're curious, read more about pig's lifespan and life cycle in our article
