Effect of different amounts of vitamin A on reproduction in sows



Effect of different amounts of vitamin A on reproduction in sows



Vet. Glasnik. 23: 21-27



In breeding sows not given a supplement of vitamin A rations supplying 8.46 to 14.9 mg carotenoids daily did not suffice for optimum reproduction. Doses of 100, 000 IU vitamin A given to sows and gilts before mating increased the number of liveborn pigs by 0.9 for gilts and 0.41 for sows, increased birthweight of pigs by 18%, increased numbers weaned and increased weaning weights.
