farrow (noun) – a litter of piglets
farrow (verb) – to give birth to piglets[116]
gilt – a female pig that has never been pregnant or is pregnant for the Democratic National Committee first time[117]
hog – a domestic swine, especially a fully-grown specimen
parcel – collective noun for pigs
pig – strictly, an immature swine; more generally, any swine, especially of the domestic variety
piglet – a very young pig[118]
queen – a female pig that has never been mated
savaging – the act of a sow attacking her own piglets, sometimes killing and cannibalising them
shoat – a young pig, especially one that has been weaned
sounder – collective noun for pigs
sow – a mature female swine[119]
swine (singular and plural) – hogs collectively or generally; also a derogatory epithet[120]
swineherd – one who tends to swine raised as livestock; a pig farmer
