Flushing technique in pigs

Over the years, different feeding strategies have been developed to improve the reproductive indices of sows, among which the Flushing technique should be highlighted. This feeding strategy consists on overfeeding sows for one or two weeks prior to the insemination to optimize the ovulation of the sow and thus ensure the reproductive success, especially in nulliparous and primiparous females, as well as increase the number of piglets per sow.
