Abstract: At an eCG induced oestrus, 212 sows were inseminated once with 3.5 x 109 sperm either in 80 ml extender (control) or in 56 ml extender followed by a flush with 24 ml sperm free extender (modified insemination technique, MIT). There was no significant effect of insemination management on subsequent farrowing rates or litter sizes although there was a trend for MIT sows of parities one and two to have a higher farrowing rate than controls (74.5% vs. 64.9%; p = 0.13).
