PREGNANCY DIAGNOSIS
Pregnancy control can be done indirectly by detecting the return to estrus while exposed to a boar or directly by ultrasound. As a general strategy, the use of ultrasound should follow on positive pregnancy checks to validate results of the boar exposure. Sows that are already detected as returned to estrus do not need to be checked with ultrasound.
