Exchange workshop in Alsace: sow CG36, the key points in maternity


The importance of the first 24 hours for piglets after the calving: one of the points developed during the technical meeting with our Alsatian breeders.

Michel Launay, Technical Manager Europe, led the workshop around the maternity and recalls in particular that in order to ensure a good colostrale grip and weight gain the first 24 hours, it is important to be attentive and to control the comfort and temperature conditions of the piglets:

  • Dry piglets well
  • Ensure nest temperatures between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius
  • Ensure a good colostrale socket: if necessary, make alternating feedings – separate the larger first born from the last born and smaller.

The first 24 hours are essential for young piglets.
