Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine whether feeding altrenogest (AT) to primiparous sows with smaller litters during the last week of lactation would improve their fertility. At day 21 of a 28-day lactation, 40 primiparous sows nursing ≤8 pigs were assigned equally to 2 groups, either to...

AbstractFull Text

About 40% of red meat consumed around the world is porcine meat. Argentinean producers face the big challenge of achieving productive improvements with efficient and sustainable economic development and reproductive technologies, like artificial insemination and sperm cryopreservation (that still...

Abstract

Individual-specific hidden inbreeding depression load (IDL) can be accounted for in livestock populations by appropriate best linear unbiased prediction approaches. This genetic effect has a recessive pattern and reveals when inherited in terms of identity-by-descent. Nevertheless, IDL inherits as...

Abstract

Multiple trait selection indexes in pig breeding programmes should take into account the population structure and time delay between parent selection and expressions of traits in all production levels next to the trait impacts on economic efficiency of production systems. Gene flow procedures could ...

Abstract

In the pork industry, artificial insemination and the storage of boar semen in liquid at 17°C are routinely applied to optimize the ejaculate and bring about rapid genetic changes that are reflected in the animal protein. Although the results are satisfactory, they are below what occurs with...

Abstract

The wide application of artificial insemination technology has played a positive role in promoting the sound and rapid development of the pig industry. Due to the fast development of the modern express industry and the maturity of estrus synchronization technology in swine, artificial insemination...

Abstract

Background: Advances in nanotechnology have permitted molecular-based targeting of cells through safe and biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles (MNP). Their use to detect and remove damaged spermatozoa from semen doses could be of great interest. Here, MNP were synthesized and tested for their...

Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the reproductive performance of a new artificial insemination (AI) device specifically designed for gilts (Deep cervical AI, Dp-CAI) by means of which the sperm is deposited deeply in the cervix (8 cm more cranial than in traditional cervical...

Abstract

Pigs infected by porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) are affected by severe diarrhea, vomiting and dehydration. The severity of clinical signs depends on the virus strain. Two genetically different PEDV strains are known to infect pigs, the PEDV S-InDel strains which circulate on all continents...
