PigWatch® new technology for predicting the best time to inseminate sows

June 22, 2016
During the year 2015, CDPQ realized a project to scientifically validate the accuracy of a new technological innovation, called “PigWatch”, to predict the appropriate time to carry out the insemination of sows. The PigWatch® system has been developed by the company Conception Ro-Main and their Italian partner, LPS Electronics. Their aim was to design and develop a technology specifically for producers and adapted to on-farm conditions, that would assist them in optimizing sow herd management as regards heat cycle detection and breeding procedures (inseminations).
