Top 10Management Recommendations
8) The range in lactation length can be more important than the mean. When weaning at < 17 d, small 1 d changes in lactation length can result in large changes in sow reproductive performance.
7) Reevaluate your heat detection and insemination program to improve sow CR.
6) Consider split weaning & wean the heavier half of the litter 2 to 3 d early.
5) Consider PG 600® at weaning for all sows or only inject high risk sows (P1s, shortest lactations in group, or wait until 7 d).
