Abstract: The Artificial Insemination Technology Is Widely Used In Swine(S.Domesticus) Breeding Herds As A Method Of Genetic Improvement Of Sows. There Are Currently Three Main Methods Of Inseminating Sows – Cervical, Post-Cervical And Deep Uterine Method. The Gedis® Catheter Is A Modification To The Traditional Catheter. The Aim Of This Study Was To Evaluate The Efficiency Of The Gedis® Catheter On The Reproductive Parameters Of Sows And Gilts, Depending On The Month Of Breeding, Parity And Weaning-To-Oestrus Interval. For This Study 565 Nrs. Gilts And 1714 Nrs. Multiparous Sows Were Inseminated During Timeframe Of 12 Months. Conception Rate, Farrowing Rate And Litter Size Parameters Were Evaluated. Overall Results Showed 90.60%-92.28% Conception Rate, 89.26%-91.40% Farrowing Rate, 12.93±3.23-14.05±3.75nrs.Total Born Piglets Per Litter And 12.44±3.23-13.21±3.59 Nrs. Live Born Piglets Per Litter. Month Of Breeding Has Significant Influence On The Reproductive Performance Of The Sows. Parity And Weaning-To-Oestrus Interval Does Not Have Influence On Conception Rate And Farrowing Rate Of The Animals. The Parity Of The Sows Has A Significant Influence On Litter Size. The Catheter Model Gedis Can Be Used For Breeding Of Animals With Different Numbers Of Parities. The GedisInsemination Technology Has Shown To Yield Positive Fertility Performance Of Inseminated Sows While Easing The Insemination Process And The Handling Of Sperm Dose. Keywords -Conception Rate, Gedis®, Farrowing Rate, Litter Size,Sows
