7 half months 125 kg been in heat once before 

so approx 225 days old, i would keep the animal try get some more kg on her, say 140kg-150kg, let her cylce once or twice more (or longer depending)before AI, every time make a note of how long  she is in full standing heat ect.... you have either spent good money buying her in or time and money raising her so it dont make sense in just culling because she aint ready at the mo to AI properly....

at the mo we tend to AI at around 280 days mark if all well some alot later..... kg from 130-150+ (they get delivered at 250-260 days old) yesterday had 2 gilts birth, one 23 total 21 are viable. the other 9 with 4 viable.... same sperm used even same standing heat times, thats gilts for ya....

North of Korat. A week ago we sell at 55 to buyers in korat and 57 local. Now when CP have raise its base price from 48 to 50 and many regions also raise there price. Our buyer still tell us that it is no change in price. I don't know what to think.

How many pigs you have? If you can sell 55-57 baht I think that's quite ok.

It is just around 55 pigs but it is not about what is "quite ok", rather correct price. We need to know if we get rip by our feed dealer.

 

55 pigs á 200 bath = 11.000 bath going in someone else pocket. I prefer into mine pocket.

I can only tell you that I buy good quality pigs locally for 53-55 baht. I'm in Kalasin. Buy from farmers here and Sarakham. Who sells me 55 baht delivers the pig to my farm. If someone buys my food (full program) I buy back 57 baht.

Unfortunately there is no such thing as a correct price. You must negotiate and understand how they buy. I.e. do they deduct price for pigs below 90 or above 115kg, they pay cash or credit if credit what terms, etc etc..
Hope this helps.

100 kg pigs in Korat is 62 bath/kg (sold 30 in the beginning of the week direct to butcher).

 

It is all about your pigs. If they are fat or the meat is not red enough, you will get lower price.

If you go through a middleman, you will lose 3 - 5 bath/kg.
