The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of the weaned recipients' parity on fertility and prolificacy following NsDU-ET.
UCP1 KI pigs are a potentially valuable resource for agricultural production through their combination of cold adaptation with reduced fat deposition.
In late 2015, an avian-origin H4N6 influenza A virus was isolated from pigs in the United States.
This study assessed the efficacy of two different Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae vaccination programmes in relation to the time of weaning.

Sows can exhibit clear preferences for enrichment type, with the sows interacting with the rope significantly more often throughout the study, at each sampling hour.
Sperm motility, morphology and three seminal plasma proteins were positively associated with heterospermic boar fertility.
