Data from two experiments were used to study the relationship between weaning-to-estrus interval (WEI, varying from 3 to 6 d) and the duration of estrus, the interval from onset of estrus to ovulation and fertilization results at 120 h after ovulation, in 201 multiparous sows. An increase in WEI resulted in a decrease in the duration of estrus (Duration of estrus (h) = [81 (exp1) or 88 (exp2)]-.33 x WEI, R2 = .25, P < .001) and a decrease in the interval from onset of estrus to ovulation (onset… CONTINUE READING
