IDAVANG is testing deep insemination

Recently, IDAVANG Mūša farm in Lithuania has tested a well-known but not widely in pig breeding used method of insemination - deep insemination. Usually the semen is implanted through the catheter into the pig's cervix. In the case of deep insemination, a double catheter is inserted, which allows it to be implanted directly into the uterus of the pig.

According to Renatas Nedzinskas, Chief Veterinar of the company, this method of insemination is effective because it is no longer necessary to stimulate the sow before, which saves time and requires fewer people.

In the future, monitoring the effectiveness of such a method of insemination is likely to reduce the dose or concentration of the semen by reducing the number of boars accordingly.
