    I have a 2 year old that freshened last year no problems. Problem this year is I have not seen her in heat . I have luted her 2x and still no signs. I just put in a cidr. When is the earliest I can pull it to try to breed her . Its getting late and I do not want to be kiddin til aug .

    Patty,
    Do you have PG 600? This time of year, if it's not a boer, then I would use the PG 600 the day before I pulled the CIDR. I've done quite a few this year (boers) with the 14 day pull and they've settled. (HERE, I set up a doe for a buck collection and pulled the CIDR at 12 days, she was in heat the next am. She was a great "jump" victim and then bred to the buck. She settled.) We're still technically in the last stages of breeding season...though cycles are shorter and quieter.

    If you've used lute...then the doe is not bred. I get kinda' antzy with people who say she's not bred but been exposed to a buck at this stage in the game. If they've given lute 9-11 days after exposure to a buck, then the doe is definately not bred.

    I've used CIDR's quite a bit over the years. I've followed the instructions from my wonderful vet at the U of M. I pull them out on day 12 and give PG600 at the time of removal. This protocol has always worked here during breeding season as well as during the 'off' season.

    I do not have pg6000 but I will call my Vet and see if she has it .

    The doe has not been exposed except the other day when she should have been in heat , I was there the whole time. there is no way she was bred. She is really just pissing me off about now ! I luted 2 the same day 1 came in and the other did not eerrrrr.


    Thanks , Patty

    You're vet probably won't have it. It's listed on Jefferspet.com under swine. Order the 5 single dose vials...not the cheaper 5 dose vial. Trust me on this one! You've got the CIDRs...you will eventually need the PG 600, anyway. Jeffers should be able to get it to you in 3 days.
    There's enough PG 600 to do 10 does, just keep it in the refrig and use it next breeding season.
