Pre-farrowing supplement through drinking water reduces stillbirth

The majority of stillborn piglets are potentially viable, but die due to asphyxia during birth. Data from our research centre have shown that oxygenation of piglets deteriorates and stillbirth rate increases with duration of parturition.

The variation of plasma level of altrenogest and the hormone withdrawal to estrus interval of gilt influenced from the commercial products in Thailand

In Thailand, altrenogest is commonly used for adjusting the number of gilts for batch and weekly farrowing system. Nevertheless, two-third of gilts showed the estrous sign within 7 days after altrenogest withdrawal in some weeks.
