This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of providing super ovulation induction and feed protein levels before mating on sow reproductive performances. Eighteen gilts, weighted 100-107 kg were used in this research. There were two types of hormones used as super ovulation agents in this study, namely PMSG (Follig on, Intervet, North Holland) and hCG (Chorulon, Intervet, North Holland). Meanwhile, prostaglandins (Prosolvin, Intervet, North Holland) was used for estrus simultaneous. This research was conducted using a completely randomized design with a factorial model of 2 x 3, where as the first treatment factor was the super ovulation hormone PMSG + hCG with two levels, namely zero injection of hormones (as a control) and hormone injections; and the second treatment factor was the level of feed protein with three levels of administration, namely: 14%, 16% and 18% level of feed protein, respectively. Each treatment combination was repeated 3 (three) times. The variables observed were the gestation period of sow, the weight of sow at the end of pregnancy, and the birth litter size. The results showed that the treatment had a very significant effect on the gestation period of sows and its body weight at the end of gestation, but there was no significant difference in the litter size of birth. It is concluded, the reproductive performance of sows through super ovulation and feed protein level before mating, were able to shorten the length of gestation, improve the body weight of pregnant sows and litter size born.
