Re: 2 boars a.i.

She said that sperm from multiple boars creates competition which in turn produces more piglets, creating smaller pigs at birth. I'm not an expert and have never actually used two boars I was just wondering if anyone else had ever heard of this before. If so I was going to try it.

Re: 2 boars a.i.

Her reasoning was that multiple boars tend to have smaller babies which makes it easier on a gilt to pass the babies and you dont have as many problems with delivery

Pure boar to cross sow

Was thinking about breeding my all white cross sow to a pure york boar. Has anyone had any luck with this or should I just find a boar like cookie or white privilege and hope some turn out all white?
