Abstract

Maternal breeds for sows have been bred for high prolificacy during recent decades. Although large litters may be beneficial for economic efficiency, pre-weaning mortality is increased. Thus, focus should instead be put on new traits such as piglet vitality (PV). Until now, no validated scoring...

Abstract

Feeding conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) or medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) to dams has been shown to improve progeny growth and survival, and hence may be particularly advantageous to gilt progeny. Primiparous (n=129) and multiparous sows (n=123; parities 3 and 4) were fed one of four diets from day ...

AbstractFull Text

Injections of sows with pregnant mare serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) and human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) prior to mating have been shown to improve endogenous secretions of pregnant hormones that improve and optimize the uterine environment and condition during pregnancy that eventually lead to...

AbstractFull Text

Weaning is known to induce metabolic stress, which has negative impacts on piglet health. However, little information is currently available regarding the intensity and duration of this stress in both normal- and low-weight piglets. The objective of this study was thus to characterize markers of...
