Aqueous Pheromone Formulation

COST EFFECTIVE PHEROMONE SPRAY - RESPONSIBLE FOR THE STIMULATION OF SEXUAL RESPONSES IN THE FEMALE PIG.

Androstenone is a pheromone responsible for the stimulation of sexual responses in the female pig. Certain neurons in the olfactory bulbs of the sows produce excitatory responses to androstenone. Androstenone can either act as a priming pheromone or a signalling pheromone i.e. one that elicits sexual activity. Well known difficulties in heat detection (especially in gilts) can be minimized through proper stimulation of the reproductive cycle, using androstenone. Gilts can be stimulated to their first estrus, 20 days earlier if they are exposed to boars’ pheromones when compared to isolated gilts. 

Servistim® Green contains a mix of the pheromones Androstenone and Androstenol. These are natural compounds responsible for the stimulation of sexual responses in the female pig – both before and during natural mating or artificial insemination.

A revolutionary, cost effective and financially rewarding method for pig production.

USE TO SYNCHRONIZE GILTS

USE FOR HEAT DETECTION

USE DURING ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION

IMPROVES CONCEPTION RATE AND LITRE SIZE

USE TO SPEEDEN ONSET OF ESTRUS AFTER WEANING

Servistim is used as an aid to breeders and farmers to help identify sows and gilts that are ready for insemination. Two sprays of Servisitim directly onto the sows nose from a distance of 20-30 cm will stimulate sows and gilts into showing the ‘standing’ reflex that shows they are ready for mating which coincides with the optimum time for conception. When used correctly, Servistim will effectively eliminate problems with heat detection in sows in the absence of the boar, and will optimise the efficiency of artificial insemination. Without the use of Servistim, there will be missed or wasted matings, which will cost the farmer at least 21 days extra feed and lost production. By using Servistim, along with artificial insemination the farmer is avoiding farming based on chance. He will instead be optimising reproduction and will therefore be economically more successful. Servistim can also be used to synchronise sows and gilts oestruses, so that groups of sows will come into heat all at the same time, further optimising the process of artificial insemination.
