PostSubject: Boar Problems!!   2nd February 2011, 11:14 am

we ahve this boar we bought this November from a breeder,cause for the breed he already had a replacement boar and the gilts where this boars offsprings.

the concern is that at what age can a boar go sterile or not be able to produce. i was told that he was around 5 years old.

we dewormed him and he lost a couple of pounds and to be exact he has lost like 50lbs. he was bred to 4 gilts we also purchased and he mounted them with no problem and they didnt get bred you think i bought a sterile boar or for his age he cant produce anymore

he is eating 8lbs of cattle cubes..

please help before i go in to deep??

For the looks of it, I doubt that your boar is sterile. If your boar has lost 50 lbs, then he might be unhealthy. Semen cells react very similar to the body. If your body is tired, the cells themselves under the microscope will not move as well and the cell count might be a bit low. Consider the weight factor and nurse him back up to his weight.
