German to English translations [PRO]
German term or phrase:ungleichmäßig Wurfentwicklung
to do with piglets and pigs in various stages of life
Explanation: 'Wurf', in this context, means the total of piglets that are born by any one pig at the time. Ungleichmässige Wurfentwicklung: Differences within the individual piglets' development.(some grow fast, others stay small and weak. That kind of thing)Sorry I can't provide the proper English expression for the phenomenon.
Explanation: The answers from Anni and Ulli are both good. If you put Anni's explanation together with Ullu's modifiers, you're set. The only change I might make would be to change the position of "litter" and "development":
irregular/uneven/patchy/erratic/non-uniform litter development
