Abstract

A portable, compact electronic device has been developed to detect pregnancy in the sow. Accuracy has been reported to be 90-95 percent in the 30 to 80 day post conception sow or gilt. The instrument is able to detect fluid in the gravid uterus with ultra-sound waves. Diagnosis is rapid and can be made on the farm.
