Matrix (Swine Only) from Merck/Intervet is for synchronization of estrus in sexually mature gilts that have had at least one estrous cycle. Treatment with altrenogest solution 0.22% results in estrus (standing heat) 4 to 9 days after completion of the 14-day treatment period. Altrenogest solution 0.22% (2.2 mg/mL). 1000ml.
Matrix is the only product that lets you synchronize estrus in your gilt pool for maximum operational efficiency. They come into heat during the same period, are bred at the same time, and farrow on the same schedule. Their pigs are weaned together, finish together and are delivered to the packer together. You'll have better flow management with less variation, and your packer will receive a more consistent product.
