gilt not showing any signs of estrous

Post by porcine » Mon Oct 19, 2020 7:57 pm

I am seeking some advice. I have a january berk gilt that came off matrix on sunday, day 14. Today is day 22 and there has been no swelling, discharge, or standing. She was with 3 other gilts that came off matrix at same time and they are getting bred. Only sign I saw from her was trying to rub the flank of the other gilts. I tossed her in the pen with the boar to see if he could physically stimulate her, no interest from boar or her. She was cycling first part of Septemeber, but then she seemed to go silent and so I thought if I put her on matrix, it would help reset her.

Do I count out 15 days from today, hit her with pg600 and maybe just have her sired by my boar? or does she go to the meat locker.
