Every day Otrada strives to increase efficiency in its work and implement the best world practices of pig industry. We are happy to share the results and experience so you can improve your own pig production.
In the end of 2021, we started using intrauterine insemination at Otrada farms to improve the performance of the insemination site and optimize the process. This method of artificial insemination has proven to provide significantly more offspring from one boar due to a lower semen dose required for the procedure. Moreover, there is a significant reduction in man-hours of the insemination staff and an increase in the percentage of successful inseminations.
Here are our key results:
+ 40% inseminations from one boar
95-97% conception rate
- 30% working hours of the insemination staff
