There are many reasons why the gilt may not breed. Often it may be a cyst in the ovaries. There are diseases that can cause non breeding such as Lepto, toxoplasmosis, and reproductive viruses. Some of the diseases will run their course, others wont. It really depends on if you are attached to this pig or not. At 2 Id be inclined to give her a couple more tries, but if then nothing, I would replace her. If she has been A.I. only I would try bringing in a live boar. If still nothing you can try an injection of lutalyse to see if she would expell a cyst. You can also try using an antibiotic course in case its lepto.

I have a 4 year old sow that had a litter at 1 year of age, then nothing since. I gave her a lute shot a couple days ago and am giving her till the end of this summer. I really like her so hope it works.

also should note that it isnt uncommon for a pig to be butchered only to find they have a dead end reproductive tract.
