The present study was conducted on
75 pigs (gilts and sows) of Tamworth and Desi (T&D) breed
distributed in six groups. Different herbal treatment viz.
Clemenstol syrup, Femelin, Lecorin plus and Asoka cordial in
various stages of reproduction namely pubertal stage,
periparturient stage, post farrowing stage and around weaning
stage were given, Group I (C) for gilts and Group 2 (C1) for sows
were kept as control, lower was observed during earlier ages i.e.
during first seven days. Almost 100% survivability was recorded
after 29th day of age. Piglet survivability was higher during
latter ages i.e. 29th to 56th day of age in comparison to earlier
ages i.e. from birth to 28th day of age. However, there was no
definite trend observed in different treatment groups and were
statistically non significant.
