AbstractFull Text

The primary controller of weaned pig output is the successful breeding of enough females in the breeding week. The number of females available for breeding is dependent on the number of sows weaned sows and service-ready gilt availability. Primiparous (P1) sows often have longer wean-estrus...

Abstract

It is widely accepted that uterine contraction is initiated by spontaneous generation of electrical activity at a cellular level in the form of action potentials. Such action potential events, when they involve many myometrial cells and occur in immediate succession, are described by their...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Altresyn® product (progesterone-based product) as a method for synchronization of oestrus in gilts. The gilts were divided into three experimental groups. The synthetic progesterone Altrenogest was fed daily to 39 gilts at 20 mg/gilts for 18 days. ...

Abstract

The aims of this study were to determine if pre- and post-mating feeding levels interact to affect embryonic survival, and to determine whether feeding to the maintenance requirement would impair embryo survival. Gilts were allocated to a pre-mating treatment of 1 or 0.8× energy maintenance from...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of applying sublethal stress treatment at room temperature, before cryopreservation (hydrostatic pressure (HP): 40 MPa, 80 min) of 34 boar ejaculate samples, on post-thawed motility and sow fertility. Sows (n=102) were randomly allocated...

Abstract

The present study was conducted to determine whether vaginal electrical resistance (VER) can be exploited to improve the low reproductive efficiency of the rare Okinawan native Agu pig, in which estrous signs are difficult to ascertain by visual observation. The lowest VER (272.0±12.4 units, n=5)...

AbstractFull Text

A study aimed at determining the relationships between intravaginal electrical impedance (IEI), estrus behavior, plasma concentrations of reproductive hormones (progesterone, estradiol-17β and luteinizing hormone) in prediction of the optimal insemination time was conducted in sixteen normal...

Abstract

Changes in the genital mucus around the oestrus are used by different diagnostic methods to determine optimal fertilisation time. In the current study, the authors evaluated the different arborisation patterns found in vestibular mucus, and also established its relationship with vestibular...
