Hampshire Duroc Yorkshire Reproductive Goals/Facts 114 day Gestation (3/3/3) 21 day Lactation

5 day Rebreeding 140 Day Farrowing Interval 2.6 Litters/year X 12 weaned pigs/sow = 31.2 pigs weaned per sow per year Gilts about 5 less Mating Systems Double mating 12 and 24 hr intervals Increased CR, Litter Size

Pen Mating/Pasture Breeding 1 boar per 10 sows q 23-45 days (cont farrow) Adv/Disdvantages Hand Mating Estrus sows taken to breeding pen (boar) AI Female Anatomy

1. Pregnant horn > 1 meter in length 2. Epithelial-chorial placentation 3. Cervical architecture unique -Interdigitating Prominances Puberty 150 250 days (mean = 200 days) Cross Breeds< Land< Yorks < Durocs

Can be Delayed/Hastened by # of Factors Inbreeding, nutrition, confinement, lighting, boar exposure Earlier in Boar Estrous Cycle 21 days Proestrus 1-3 days Alert to boar but will not accept

Estrus 3-4 days Physical and behavioral signs Ovulation occurs mid-late estrus Diestrus 14 days Metestrus 2 days Estrous Cycle

Ovulation and Fertilization Ovulation - last 1/3 estrus q 2hrs Rates Avg 17 sows 13 Gilts (Heritable) Fertilization - All or non response Optimal breeding is 12-24 hrs after start estrus Sperm viable for 24 hrs 1st Serv CR 70 90% (preg rate?)

EED 30-40% between day 1 114 50% during 1st 25 days Intrauterine migration Migrate up to 12 days Need 4 viable embryos for MRP day 12 Need 2 viable embryos for MRP day 30 Preg Detection

Non Return to Estrus US at 30-90 days (preg/open) Rectal palp? Parturition - Farrowing Can induce PGF2 10mg at day 112 gestation 60-90% farrow within 18-36 hrs Duration 2- 24 hours 2 piglets/hour

Lactation Colostrum Important Milk let down 28 sec Nurse every hour

32 hours to establish teat order Estrus Synch - Sows Primarily done by weaning (18-24 days) 10 mg PGF2within 24 hrs post farrowing and 5 ml PG 600 at weaning (reduces anestrous) PG 600 = 400 IU PMSG and 200 IU hCG mimicks FSH and LH

Estrus Sync - Gilts Various protocols PG 600 5-6 months old = 50-70% estrus in 5-7 days (often DNB) PG 600 (day 0) + Lut (day 18) = estrus (day 20-25) = Pig Sync? Feed progestin (Penmatetm Regumatetm) day 0-21 + lute day 35 =

estrus day 37-42 Reproductive Problems Many management and breed factors Repro tract deformities common in gilts 5-10% Disease(s) SMEDI Syndrome Stillborn, mummies, ED, infertility

Viral and Bacterial Causes Humans Viral Repro Disease Syndrome I Fatal to embryo or fetus but dam normal True abortion rare = more EED Parvo, enterovirus, Jap B encephilitis Syndrome II

Maternal morbidity, late term abortion Psuedorabies, hog cholera, swine influenza Bacterial Repro Disease Lepto typical serovars Mild signs in adults, typical pathogenesis Abortion, mummification, stillbirths Vaccine available Brucellosis

EED and abt Eradication and reportable Male repro facts Semen 3 fractions- presperm, sperm, postsperm gel 250 mls with 150 500 X 109 cells Ejaculation pressure dependent 3-20 minutes AI with fresh chilled semen common
