Altresyn®
Altrenogest Oral solution
The batch management system of farming allows strict All-in/All-out (AIAO). The AIAO management has a vast impact on the prevalence and severity of various infectious diseases, including enzootic pneumonia and PMWS. Altresyn® is ideal for synchronizing puberal gilts into an existing batch.

Altresyn® contains Altrenogest, which leads to suppression of the oestrus during the whole treatment. Altresyn® is the answer to your reproductive needs. An 18 day treatment regimen with Altresyn® will bring your gilts into heat within 3-6 days of completion, thus facilitating heat synchronization and batch management.
