The importance of boar submaxillary gland secretions in boar-induced precocious puberty in the gilt



The importance of boar submaxillary gland secretions in boar-induced precocious puberty in the gilt



British Society of Animal Production Winter Meeting, 25-27 March 1985, Grand Hotel, Scarborough (Paper 70): 2



48 Large White (LW) X (LW X Landrace) prepubertal gilts from 12 litters were randomly allocated within litter by weight to 4 treatment groups, each of 6 gilts in 2 replicates. Starting at a mean group age of 165 days, gilts were exposed for 30 min per day for 75 days or until puberty, to a mature sialectomised boar (group 1), a mature sham-operated boar (group 2), or a mature unoperated boar (group 3), or were not exposed to a boar (group 4; controls).
