The effects of growth hormone-releasing factor (GHRF) injections to sows during late gestation were investigated in two experiments. In the first one, four treatments were applied to eight catheterized sows according to two 4 x 4 Latin squares: oral administration of 2 mg of pyridostigmine, a cholinesterase inhibitor, per kilogram of BW (PYR group); i.m. injection of 50 micrograms of GHRF/kg BW (GHRF group); a combination of the pyridostigmine and GHRF treatments (PYR+GHRF); or i.m. injection… CONTINUE READING
