Estrous Synchronization Product

Intervet, Inc.

The new estrous synchronization product, MATRIX, from Intervet, Inc., is used on sexually mature gilts. Approved by FDA in November 2003, MATRIX effectively mimics progesterone. MATRIX is administered to gilts in their daily feed allowance for 14 days. Females will not come into heat while the product is being fed. After the MATRIX treatment period ends, up to 85% of cyclic gilts will reach estrus within 4 to 9 days. The product is designed to help reduce variability in pig flow, helps producers meet breeding targets and improves farrowing rate. The product reduces the normal biological variation in gilt cycles and helps improve production efficiency.
