 Matrix vs. PG600

PostSubject: Matrix vs. PG600   1st January 2010, 1:31 pm

I need to know what is the difference between matrix and PG600. From what I understand, PG600 only works with gilts that have not cycled yet and Matrix works with sows or gilts that have cycled. I just need this cleared up. Thank you and happy new years

I beleive matrix can be used on sows that have cycled already. It is really meant for a larger group because it is a bit expensive.

P G 600 is used to induce a cycle on a young gilt who has not yet starting cycling. It will not work if the gilt has allready cycled for the first time.

Matrix is used to sync groups of sows or gilts estrus cycles together it is an easy way to get all of your herd bred at the same time.

You need to keep a close eye on the cycling period of your gilts, right before puberty of young gilts or at first signs of ovulation you can give pg600.. However, if gilts are already cycling and are given PG600, there is a 70% chance that they will grow and ovulate follicles, but will fail to express estrus. Do not immediately give a second injection if gilts fail to respond to the 1st injection. Some gilts actually ovulate after the 1st injection but fail to show estrus and therefore a 2nd injection would only induce new ovulations and result in a greater delay to next estrus. Pg600 works in young gilts in conunction with PMS and HCG that occur naturally, the horomones provided with pg600 are FSH and LH, an they provide additional horomones to aid in required development and ovulation. Pg600 can also decrease time for sows from farrowing back to producing estrus.

Matix is used for parallel control of of estrus synchronization is sexually mature, cycling female's. It is a synthetic progestagen the supresses estrogen. Statistics of matrix after being injected, is usually around 85% of your active swine will be in estrus cycle within 4-9 days, after a 14 day cycle treatment of matrix.
