Farm Analysis Program
Another component of the Farm Analysis program looks at # of matings per service. Data shows that multiple matings (2 or 3 doses) result in better farrowing rates than those getting 1 dose of semen. In this example data, it shows that overall those getting 1 dose of semen at 86% farrowing rate for the time period compared to 2 doses at 91.1% farrowing rate and those getting 3 doses at 88.0% farrowing rate. 40% of those getting 1 dose of semen are gilts and at 3.2% lower farrowing rate than those getting 2 doses. Looking at data like this can help farms finetune the management practices in the breeding barn.
