Re: Sow won't stand

Thanks for the idea. I really want this match again. What are your thoughts on beer? I have one sow that is cranky with her babies the 1st dew days. She savaged most of her 2nd litter. 4 beers twice a day for first 4 days and she is now parity 6.
Beer seams to work for humans. 🤣
Thoughts?

Ovugel

I am new to thinking about ovugel usage. New information is out there from the older posts. My question, I have a 3rd parity sow due to come into heat September 4 or 5. I need to be away from the ranch beginning on the 4th. Could ovugel usage prior, quicken her up to September 2 or 3rd?

Gestational diabetes

Does anyone know if sows can get gestation diabetes? I have a sow who easily drinks twice as much water as everyone else. She has been getting 6 pounds of feed because she is always on the slim side. She is wormed every 6 weeks and is up to date on vaccinations. I probably wouldn't have noticed the ...

Re: Hi Point Genetics - Dissapointing

I was just reading your experience with Hi Point. Disappointed is putting it lightly. We bought 2 Elite gilts. The registered york wont cycle constantly and we missed her for farrowing in time for our fair. The registered Hamp is a total loss. She was bred to Man Amongst Boys from Hi Point. 5 piglet...

Re: Want to give this gilt one last try.

You might be trying to soon. I am not an expert but have had a few Durocs. The duroc sow I have now also is difficult to read. She has a large amount of swelling and mucus. The swelling is nearly gone before she stands. She was sold to me because the larger producer could get her caught. Her babies ...

Re: Putting sows together

I have had good luck with groups of 3 or 4 by putting them in pens next to each other for a couple of weeks. Make sure they are not crowded. Introduce one pen mate at a time and let them settle a couple of weeks before the next room mate. There will be argumentS! Stay out of the way. I would also co...

Re: Matrix Help

This post refers to 18 days on matrix. If I kept them 19 days I could have fresh semen on day 4 and be home starting day...
