    • Insertion of an intrauterine catheter for post-cervical artificial insemination in gilts : a case report 

      Ulguim, Rafael da Rosa; Vier, Carine Mirela; Betiolo, Felipe Basquera; Sbardella, Pedro Ernesto; Bernardi, Mari Lourdes; Wentz, Ivo; Mellagi, Ana Paula Gonçalves; Bortolozzo, Fernando Pandolfo (2018) [Journal article]
      The aim of this case report was to characterize the insertion of an intrauterine catheter (IC) in gilts to perform post-cervical artificial insemination (PCAI). Attempts to insert ICs through the cervixes of gilts were ...
    • Managing reproduction in hyperprolific sow herds 

      Bortolozzo, Fernando Pandolfo; Zanin, Gabriela Piovesan; Ulguim, Rafael da Rosa; Mellagi, Ana Paula Gonçalves (2023) [Journal article]
      The rearing of large litters from hyperprolific sows is a characteristic of modern genotypes. However, these sows have body and reproductive characteristics that differentiate them from the genotypes of the past decades, ...
    • Perspectives of intrauterine artificial insemination applicability in gilts 

      Will, Kelly Jaqueline; Mellagi, Ana Paula Gonçalves; Bernardi, Mari Lourdes; Bortolozzo, Fernando Pandolfo; Ulguim, Rafael da Rosa (2021) [Journal article]
      The application of the intrauterine artificial insemination (IUAI) technique allows optimization of a swine production system due to the reductions in volume and number of sperm cells in the insemination dose, and by ...
