Breeding gilts first time

(2 posts)

    Does anyone have any suggestions on breeding your gilt for the first time. I have heard many many different times that we should. My main concern is for the gilts. I want them to have a continually strong heat cycle through out their life. Something I've read was to allow the gilt to have her first cycle and then expose her to the boar. Our first gilt will turn a year old in April and am looking ahead so that we can properly prepare her and not rush her growing up.
    Thank You!

    The most important thing is to keep her fit and healthy. Don't let her get too fat, which is easier said than done!
    Good luck! TopVeg
