Checking heat

Post by insulator » Tue Apr 14, 2020 7:22 pm

If a sow/gilt urinates when a boar is put in with her is that any indication of heat? It's time for them to be in, but they are a few days off and have not stood yet. Every time I have put the boar in our Duroc gilt seems to urinate intermittently. I have noticed hogs doing this in the past but have never heard of it being any kind of tale-tale signs. Thanks for any input.
