Breeding sows with scar tissue issues

Post by Smg » Tue Sep 07, 2021 8:11 am

Greetings,

What are peoples thoughts on breeding sows with scar tissue issues from prior farrowing events?

I have been told to use PCAI.

This a high value animal we want to get more pigs out of.

Thanks!

You can breed her. PCAI probably isn't a bad idea. Depending on the severity you may want to be prepared to take them out the side but if she's high enough value that may be a risk worth taking.
