A.S. Series 70-40
Recently, English workers have reported that when sows or gilts that were being limit fed (3 to 4 lb. per day) were allowed a double quantity of feed only on the first feed following breeding the number of ovum shed was increased. When sows were allowed to complete gestation, litter size was larger by approximately 2 pigs. The experiment reported herein was an attempt to duplicate the English work and evaluate this method of "flushing" under South Dakota conditions.
