Does Extra Feeding After Breeding Affect Litter Size

Kansas State University Swine Reserach. Fertility was evaluated in sows fed 4 vs 10 lb/d and gilts fed 4 vs 7.4 lb/d during the first 10 days after breeding. No efects on farrowing rate or litter traits were detected. This confirms results of a previous KSU experiment. Therefore, high feed intake after breeding may not afect fertility traits.
