Flushing in gilts

Flushing

Flushing is done to a gilt to increase the release of eggs in its ovaries.
This is done by increasing the feed intake 10-14 days prior to standing heat.

How to do it:

Usually we breed the sow at 7-8 months of age or if it has already stood to heat 2-3 times.

So, if the animal first heat is around 6 months you need to count 21 days to its second heat.  Then another 21 days to its third heat.

 At the start of the second heat count 11 days and when that day comes increase the feed intake of the animal.

And at its next heat (around 10 days later) you can then breed it already.

Doc Nemo, can you elaborate further;

So, if the animal first heat is around 6 months you need to count 21 days to its second heat.  Then another 21 days to its second heat.

Actually vitamins ADE is just given.

Usually if the sow is not thin or to fat it will return to heat in just 7 days.

And because of the lactation feed that it eat during the lactation period it still have enough energy for the release of the eggs.

Breeder mash, broodsow, or gestating pwede.
Kung bagong walay ang anak usually 7 days maglalandi na dapat ito, longest na 14 days.
Vitamins ADE na lang ang ibinibigay after mag walay and then normal dami lang ang feeds around 2.5-3 kgs per day dpende sa suggestion ng manufacturer ng feeds.

Ang flushing usually for gilt lang.

Yes research shows that it will. But economics wise i don't think we this yet. Focusing in management will also give us the same result.

half true, all feeds will increase the ovulation as long as it will provide the necessary energy needed of the animal.

What you are trying to do is increase the energy of the animal and any food that have good energy source could give the same result.

You can increase it by 3 kgs.

You can also check the recommendation of the feed manufacturer. Most of the time they give recommendation about this.

Commercial feeds are not all the same. So amount to feed could vary from one manufacturer to another.

Dear Doc Nemo,
Good day Doc. My landrace gilt has her first heat since last Friday (Mar.28)
and will be 7 months old this coming April 2. My question are: Is the gilt can
be breed on its second heat or I will wait for the 3rd heat for her breeding?
Can I use also my largewhite boar aged almost as my landrace gilt to service her?

Thanks,
Nick
