Re: current semen prices

You simply ask. Either earn $$$$ or dump down sink.

Terminal/maternal pooled semen should be $8/10 dose. U can’t dictate terms or boars, that is fair.

Several arrogant studs won’t discount off season. You simply need to find the ones that do.

Boar for sale

Have nice cross boar that was primarily used as a teaser but have bred several gilts and small sows naturally this fall. No longer needed as a teaser/breeder. Like to see him get a good home for someone that needs a natural breeder as opposed to having him as a pizza topping. Belted, sound, very hea...

Re: Chronic Cough and heavy breathing

Worm them and give mycoplasmal vaccine.

One of two things, worms or mycoplasmal pneumonia.

Use exceed when they cough and if that does not work it’s likely not weather related pneumonia.

Re: what antibiotic to give to bred gilts

Exceed is expensive but works well.

La200 can also be a good choice as well.

Re: best timing for AI-HELP!

As to swelling and mucous discharge - in my experience these can be highly variable across pigs and heat cycles. Some gilts can have strong heat with little to no swelling of the vulva at all while others it is very obvious. If you don’t have A teaser boar the boar in a can stuff can work well. I al...

Re: best timing for AI-HELP!

The advice above is correct but I’ll try to add more detail. 1. Pigs heat cycle is 21 days but always can vary a few days plus minus. 2. Watch the female heat patterns and record standing heat to better time semen. 3. When you certify gilt is in standing heat try to breed about 12 hours later, then ...

Re: 2017 10ft LO Profile Corn Pro BP trailer

I inquired on prices for new bumper pull 6 x 16 low profile from Ohio corn pro dealers a few weeks ago and was quoted $5500 but 6 weeks for delivery. I ended up finding a used trailer in near perfect condition at a good value.

Re: young gilt

No panic yet. 6 mos is still young. If you want to help start her cycle induce some stress. Mix with another gilt, put in trailer and haul her around for an hour. ExPose her to a teaser boar for 10-15 minutes a day. I don’t think there is any pg600 available and has not been for over a year. This ma...

Re: Rebreeding

Just to be sure buy some semen, make sure it’s alive, breed her.

Plenty of show pigs never have a second litter due to breeding problems.

Re: Hi Point Genetics?

Pure boars would parentage documented.

Ask then if they are banking there crosses.

Not in any way defending these alleged actions - I’ve received semen from boars from other studs that clearly wasn’t what I ordered. The sire documentation is the only way you can be sure.

Dextrose?

Attended a show over the weekend and noticed many show boxes had several bottles of dextrose included.

No IV lines however so must be including in water and/or feed I would think?

What is this used for and how is it used?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Cougar killed showpigs, have back up pig but is light!! Don't want to give up!!

Possible, yes but difficult.

Keep them eating a normal protein ration, do everything you can can to keep them cool. Finnish the last 3 weeks with paylean.

That volume of feed is inadequate.

165# pigs should be eating 6# per day.

Re: Pig not eating well/maybe sick?

I’m not sure the pig is ill, rather sounds like he might have some structural issues that cause him discomfort when he stands.
