In this study, thirty-three healthy pigs with78-85d pregnancied and their corresponding piglets were randomly divided into3groups, group1for Chinese herbal medicine compound preparation(the major components:Motherwort, Epimedium, Vaccaria, Dandelion, Houttuynia, Atractylodes, Hawthorn, Schisandra, etc.), group2for antibiotic control and group3for blank control. Researching the influence of reproductive performance of sows and piglets productive with the use of of the Chinese herbal medicine compound preparation, and made the following experiments.1The effects of the reproductive performance of lactating sows with the use of Chinese herbal medicine compound preparationThe indexes of feed intake, litter size of production, lactation ability, weaning to estrus time and other indicators were measured and statisticsed. Results:compared with the control group, Chinese herbal medicine compound preparation group can significantly improve the feed intake of sows during lactation (P<0.01); significantly increased sow lactation force (P<0.01); significantly improve sow production activities litter size (P<0.05); Reduce the intervals of weaning to oestrus (P<0.05); but were associated with antibiotic group (P>0.05). Conclusion:it can improve sows reproductive performance and have a positive effect with the use of Chinese herbal medicine compound preparation.2The effects of sows body condition and blood indicators with the use of Chinese herbal medicine compound preparationThe indexes of sow body size, durationing of lochia, ALT, AST, antioxidant index (MDA, SOD, GSH-Px) were measured and statisticsed. Results:before and after childbirth, group1and group2, contrast with that of control group, the recovery of body size and durationing of lochia were significantly different (P<0.05); group1have decreased approximately2days on durationing of lochia; group1contrast with group3, the indexes of AST, GSH-Px were significantly different (P<0.05); antibiotic group compared with the control group, AST,ALT were difference significantly (P<0.05). Conclusion:with the use of Chinese herbal medicine compound preparation, a certain extent should be found in recoverying the sows body condition and changing the related blood indicators.3The effects of the piglet diarrhea and blood indicators with the use of Chinese herbal medicine compound preparationThe indexes of weight gain of piglets serum conditions, diarrhea rate, ALT, AST, MDA, SOD and classical swine fever antibodies were measured and analyzed. Results: group1and group2, contrast with control group, ADG, diarrhea rate were difference significantly (P<0.05); and they were no significant differences between group1and2(P>0.05); the Chinese medicine group and the antibiotic group’s activity of ALT and AST were lower than the control group (P<0.05); compared with control group, group1and group2’s SOD, MDA activity were higher (P<0.05); group1and group2, contrast with control group, the blocking rate with classical swine fever antibodies were significant difference (P<0.05). Conclusion:with the use of Chinese herbal medicine compound preparation, it piglets diarrhea rate blood biochemical parameters and the levels of classical swine fever antibody can be ameliorated.
