Sow Seasonal Infertility, Weather, And Biology

Understanding the Biology of Seasonal Infertility to Develop Mitigation Strategies for SwineUnderstanding the Biology of Seasonal Infertility to Develop Mitigation Strategies for Swine Dr. Jason Ross, Iowa State University, share research to help understand the biology of seasonal infertility and to develop mitigation strategies for swine. Key take aways: Heat stress has direct negative effects on oocyte and early embryo development in pigs, plus prenatal exposure to heat stress could compromise the efficiency of pork production [video].

Heat Stressed Pigs

Heat Stressed Fetuses Make Different Growing & Grown PigsHeat Kills Dr. Tim Safranski, University of Missouri, highlights that the direct effects of thermal stress on pregnant females is just now beginning to be understood and that the true cost of heat stress is underestimated. This information is gaining the attention of researchers and funding agencies and creating action to address the issue.

Heat and Stress, Bad Economics

Impact of In Utero Heat Stress on Subsequent Growth, Composition and ReproductionReducing the Impact of Seasonal Loss of Productivity Dr. Tim Safranski, University of Missouri, quantifies heat stress for pork operations as costing $300 million (US) annually. Some farm operations are hit hard by heat stress, seasonally more expensive for some than PRRS. Dr. Safranski aims to raise the level of understanding of heat stress so more operations know how to handle it.
