Gilt in heat

Post by eucathepig » Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:46 am

I've had a gilt in heat for probably around a week now, maybe a little longer? This is her first time being in heat and we have county fair in 5 days. How long does their heat cycles usually last? Will she be done by fair?

Gilts standing estrus usually lasts about 48 hours.
