The goal of this research was to ascertain if multiple immunomodulation can decrease stress consequences of gilt relocation from the service station to the prefarrowing unit during the early gravidity phase. Three groups of pregnant Swedish Landrace gilts, 8 to 9 months of age, were encompassed by the research. Each group consisted of 30 pregnant gilts, and each researched group was treated differently. The animals in group A were given the immunomodulator intramuscularly in doses of 2 ml Baypamun®, Bayer Pharma, Leverkusen, Germany on the 6th, 4th and 2nd days before the relocation from the service station to the prefarrowing unit. It was also administered to the animals in group B intramuscularly in doses of 2 ml on the 5th, 3rd and 1st days before the relocation from the service station to the prefarrowing unit. Group C was not treated. Blood was sampled from the aforementioned gilts on the 2nd, 4th and 6th days, during their stay at the prefarrowing unit. During the research period statistically significant differences in plasma cortisol concentration were established P
