on my farm we are experimenting with not inducing farrowing. There is less control of timing, but piglets seem much more vital at birth, "born hungry" and actively seek teats immediately when not "forced to be born".

Of couse, you will always have that dilemma: What do you preffer, higher control at birth or increasing weight at farrowing? Depending on your results and priorities, the best option can be different.
