A special well cleaned and friendly room must be provided for semen collection.
The phantom sow needs to be the right size and safe for mounting with no distractions.
At Surin Farm we have a portion of one barn set aside just for the boars and for sperm collection and storage. Within this area we have a space set up for the boar to give sperm. When moved to this area the boar knows what is expected of him. We also have a "viewing" area with a smaller dummy sow that is used for training young boars. From this area the young boars can watch the older boar and learn from him.
