Boars play a key role in the pig breeding process when the female pigs are assimilated artificially. Before posting the ads of the type “Buy the boar” it is recommended to be sure in its excellent reproductive functions, and quality of sperm. The most important is to check whether the boar you are going to buy was kept in proper conditions and fed properly as these factors influence the reproductive functions.
The castrated male boars and producer pigs differ greatly from each other. The castrated animals are called hogs. The procedure of castration is recommended to be done during the period of 2 weeks - 1 month since the moment of birth. The operation is not the only option - there also exist chemical and radiation options. Boars - are the male pigs fully capable of mating.
The other distinctive features are:
Hogs gain weight much faster than hogs, meanwhile eat less. The boars get fat slower especially when they eat not much during the mating season.
Hogs are much larger. When the boars become fully mature, the growth stops. In the result, they would give less fat rather than female pigs even though, eat the same quantity of food.
The hog meat tastes more as, it does not contain the unpleasant smell and is fatter. The boars are also cut, though their meat is soaked for a long time, saturated with lemon, mustard, garlic.
The boars are needed to be observed constantly as they can run away, break the barriers and jump over the fence. The boars behave themselves aggressively quite often.
Hogs are calm and docile.
Boars are kept up to 10-15 years, they are capable of mating, hogs are kept exclusively for the meat, fat and other production, that is why they are kept for no more than 1 year, after they are slaughtered.
Selling of boars - is a profitable business in the sphere of agriculture as these animals play the leading role in reproduction. An active male boar can impregnate about 50-70 sows per year that will bring up to 100 piglets.
