We’ve studied the special aspects of feeding regulation and the effect of vitamin-mineral preparation with folic acid on reproductive qualities of sows. As a result of the scientifi c experiment we came to conclusion that sows received an additional vitamin-mineral preparation to basic diet had a higher multiple pregnancy by 39.3% (p < 0.05) compared with animals of the control group. Production verifi cation of the reproductive qualities with a larger number of animals confi rmed the scientifi c and economic effect of using vitamin-mineral drugs. It was found that sows received the drug had a higher prolifi cacy (by 7.3% to 15.4%) than control animals, better preservation of piglets, high breeding effi ciency.
