Research by Aust Pork Ltd & Aust Govt into increasing the birth rates of sows giving birth for the second time by altering their feed supplements. 'Second litter syndrome' or low litter size at the 2nd pregnancy has been a long term issue for the industry and could be due to the sow's health declining during her first litter lactation so they are trying supplements in their feed to try to boost the sow's reproductive capabilities. More piglets = more money.
