The relative potency of mature boar contact, transport and mixing in stimulating puberty attainment in the gilt



The relative potency of mature boar contact, transport and mixing in stimulating puberty attainment in the gilt



British Society of Animal Production Winter Meeting 26-28 March 1984, Grand Hotel, Scarborough (Paper 82): 2



120 gilts were reared with or without boars from 70 to 159 days of age. At 160 days, gilts were subjected to the following puberty-stimulating treatments: (1) transport, contact with a mature boar and "mixing", (2) transport and contact with a mature boar, (3) transport and mixing, (4) transport only, (5) contact with a mature boar and mixing, (6) contact with a mature boar only and, (7) mixing only. An 8th group was untreated, and served as a control.
