National Swine Reproduction Guide: A Troubleshooting and Management Tool

The National Swine Reproduction Guide is only available as a web application and easily accessed through personal computer, smart phones and tablets. Its portability makes the guide readily available and convenient for use anywhere. The troubleshooting and management guide is built in a user-friendly and intuitive format. The reproductive guide contains an incredible amount of information and support for pork producers, including more than 1,000 fact sheets and references.

Solving reproductive problems has a very high return on investment but the problems are often multi-faceted and are difficult to identify. This Guide will help pork producers and their support network to identify the problems and to find solutions. The National Swine Reproduction Guide is organized into a trio of themes based upon gilt, sow or boar (semen). After selecting a category, a list of potential issues are available for selection. For example, low farrowing rate or too small of gilt pool. Upon selection of this topic, the decision tree helps to narrow the search on the issue through a list of available questions. After choosing the question that best fits the original problem, an answer is provided in the form of a factsheet with viewable references.
