    Has anyone used a preg-tone sonic pregnancy detector, or similar tool? I see the preg tone 2 is much cheaper, wanting to know if anyone has experience! Thanks

    Ahhh, but Al, some of us…many of us?…are newbies. I know I am, sitting here waiting for my first litter to be born any day…hour?…minute?…second?… now. I’m seeing what you call “belly drop” here towards the end, but just from looking I would not have recognized that my pig(s) were pregnant until the last month or so. Having a way to know shortly after breeding if it “took” or if I needed to get a pair back together again would have been helpful.

    You gotty remember…a lot of us are like Sgt Schultz on “Hogan’s Heros”….”I know nothing!”.

    I edited that last comment for spelling/typo errors 3 times. None took. I still look illiterate.

    That brings up a question. When I first wean the litter the sow will come back into estrus in 3-5 days, right? I plan to have her in a breeding pen after weaning and bring the boar there. After I see them breed (the purpose of a breeding pen for me, as I can’r see everywhere) and I turn them back out to pasture, do I bring them back to the pen 21 days later and see if they breed again? If I just leave them out in the pasture I don’t know if they breed again or not, unless I just happen to be nearby at the time.

    They will cycle approx every 21 days till they take. The way that you handle the logistics of your mating’s is up to you
