Title: Return to Cyclic Activity of Sows After Fasting
Author: Johnson, John N.; Tilton, J. E.; Allrich, R. D.
Description: Complete restriction of all food intake of sows for 2, 3, or 4 days after weaning tended to increase the interval from weaning to estrus in sows. It did not, however, have a detrimental or beneficial effect on other measures of reproductive performance. These results would indicate this management practice of fasting to stimulate estrual activity is not valid.
