dc.description.abstract Several methods of synchronizing estrus have been tried in swine. One of the oldest and most commonly used natural methods is weaning pigs from a group of sows simultaneously. When this is done, the majority of sows will show estrus 3 to 7 days later if the sows have been nursed for at least 3 weeks. This method is effective and highly fertile; however, in some cases it is not practical to breed at this time and a natural method of synchronization in gilts is not available. en_US
