Have a concern with our Replacement gilt, she has a Hernia and NOW we are deciding on what to do with her should we keep her and get her surgically fixied or show her as a market gilt. What are the possibilities she can breed and pass this to her offspring.

We have never bred a gilt or sow with a hernia because even if it gets fixed, the growth in her stomach and the contractions can cause a break again. I wouldn't do it. You might get a sick sow in the crate.

Umbilical hernias are not genetic. Most of the time (99% +) they are the result of an infection and abscess. So if you fix it there is no reason to be concerned that here progeny will have them too.

You can prevent umbilical hernias by paying attention to hygiene in the farrowing house. Some people I know swear by Mistral and similar products as a prevention.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions My Daughter and I have dedcided to keep her for a year and see if we dont have any problems with her farrowing due to her Surgery. the Vet has told us that its a quick procedure and wont take more than a hour, and 99% of the time the heal super quick. so after this weekend we will be taking her to the vet to get cured from the umbilical hernia. well we will let you all know how she progresses after the surgery. Thank You All.

Gilt has been fixed and was told by our vet that she can still produce and be an excellent sow. we will have to find out how she progressess. Was a in and out procedure and was about approximately 45 minutes was put in a diet for the first 2 days,but after that she can go back to her norman feeding program.

Just need to know if a umbilical hernia is soft or hard. My barrow has a area that is swollen and hanging down. It is not tender too touch at all. Just trying to figure out if it is a hernia or a fat pocket.

A hernia is soft and you can usually push the intestines back in. The are also in front of the sheath.
Fat pockets are usually further back
