Investigations utilizing a total number of 3998 farrowings from 1558 sows on two farms have shown a frequency of puerperal diseases (periparturient hypogalactia syndrome=PHS) of 32·7% and 27·0% respectively with significant differences between gilts and sows. Sows without PHS after farrowing (farm A) had a lower frequency of animals without oestrus after weaning of the piglets (0·3 V. 1·1%), a lower rate of late onset of oestrus (3·4% V. 5·9%, P P P P P >0·05; farm B: 10·44 V. 10·80, P
