A facilities gilt holding area can vary in the number of available spaces. With the proper number of spaces, Choice has three requirements to determine a gilts eligibility for breeding.

1) 230 to 250 days of age (240+ days preferred).

2) Weight of 300 to 330 pounds (137 to 150 kg).

3) P2 backfat of 13-16 mm and not less than 12 mm.

If gilt holding space is a limitation, contact your Choice Technical Service representative to assist you in designing a program that will help you successfully manage the CG36 gilt.
