    Hormone management V: using altrenogest to restore the metabolic state of weaned sows

    08-Dec-2011 (8 years 1 days ago)

    20 years ago, when gilts were serviced at little more than 100kg’s, we observed a steep drop in productivity in the second cycle and the sows were never able to reach their maximum potential. Nowadays we have learned to mate prepared gilts, but in many cases we continue to see the second cycle syndrome.

    Programming replacement and altrenogest management using spreadsheets

    In the last chapter on hormone management we looked at the advantages of “a la carte” altrenogest treatment as opposed to the 18 day treatment used to program gilts. However, the most complicated part of “a la carte” management is finding a simple heat registration system, where we can comfortably identify when we should start the administration of altrenogest.

    In the last chapter we examined mating guidelines that came rather close to being ideal, given that they achieve the following objectives: At least one mating should be adjusted to meet the ideal time and achieve the first objective with the least number of matings.
