    Artificial insemination (AI) of sows in World as well as Serbia is a biotechnology measure, which is used in for nearly 40 years; this is the case especially in large swine farms. Use of frozen-thawed semen was accompanied with various conception rates and often number of piglets, which is still...

    The researches were carried out with the goal to see the influence of season and parity of the sows wean upon wean to estrus interval. As we could see from the trial, the proportion of first parity sows showing estrus in the first 7 days after weaning was the lowest (85.73% average per year)...
