Swine day, 1968; Swine; Estrus synchronization; Sows


Several methods of synchronizing estrus have been tried in swine. One of the oldest and most commonly used natural methods is weaning pigs from a group of sows simultaneously. When this is done, the majority of sows will show estrus 3 to 7 days later if the sows have been nursed for at least 3 weeks. This method is effective and highly fertile; however, in some cases it is not practical to breed at this time and a natural method of synchronization in gilts is not available.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, September 26, 1968
