Control of farrowing time in swine with prostaglandin F2 alpha



Control of farrowing time in swine with prostaglandin F2 alpha



Japanese Journal of Swine Science 23(1): 1-8



The present study was conducted to develop a practical technique for the induction of parturition with PGF2 alpha in pigs. Pregnant sows and gilts, which did not show evidence of milk ejection from the teats at the time of PGF2 alpha injection, were given a single intramuscular injection of 0, 5, 7.5, 10, 15 or 20 mg of PGF2 alpha on days 111, 112 and 113 of gestation (day of mating = day 0). The interval between PGF2 alpha injection and the onset of parturition averaged 35 h.
