Abstract

The objective of the present study was to determine the influences of temperature, humidity, and temperature-humidity index (THI) on piglet preweaning mortality in a conventional open-housing system commercial swine herd in Thailand. The analyzed data included 11,157 litters from 3574 Landrace ×...

Abstract

In Danish organic pig production, one-third of total born piglets die before weaning, and stillbirth has previously crudely been estimated to account for 27% of the total preweaning mortality. The objective of this study was to evaluate season, litter size, parity and body condition of the sow as...

Abstract

Female pigs in breeding herds can be managed through four phases - gilt development, breeding, gestation, and lactation - during which they may be housed in group or individual pens, stalls, or on pasture. In this review, we focus on housing environments that optimize outcomes during gestation and...

Abstract

The fetal growth is rapid during the last trimester of gestation in sows and hence sow nutrition during this period is important for fetal growth and development. During the last decade, studies reported that L-arginine HCl supplementation during gestation increased sow and piglet performances....

Abstract

Production diseases are often of multi-factorial origin in which environment (housing, nutrition and management) health and reproductive challenges show complex interactions. The aim of this study was to identify specific environment-related factors and to discuss their associations with health,...

Abstract

This study compared the development until 9 wk of age of piglets raised in either a multi-litter (ML) system or a conventional single-litter (SL) system. The ML system consisted of a multi-suckling system with 5 sows and their litters before weaning, followed by housing in a pen with enrichment in...

Abstract

In the modern swine industry, the number of piglets born alive per litter is dramatically increasing due to genetic improvement of litter traits. However, knowledge on post-partum management is inadequate to reduce piglet preweaning mortality. The present study aimed to investigate piglet...

Abstract

If loose-housed farrowing systems are to be an alternative to traditional farrowing crates, it is important that they can deliver the same production results as can be achieved in farrowing crates under commercial conditions. The aim of this study was to compare preweaning mortality in farrowing...

Abstract

We investigated the reproductive and lifetime performances of Kagoshima Berkshire gilts and sows. We examined 20605 parity records of 4419 pigs for 2008 to 2012 on a farrow-to-finish commercial farm. The mean parity (±SD) of all animals was 3.0±2.1. For farrowing performance, the highest numbers of ...

Taking into account the health and economic aspect, the most significant losses in the pig farming are those during preweaning period. In this research we observed the influence of birth mass on losses and weight gain of large Yorkshire piglets. In order to decrease the influence of external...
