Effects of environmental factors on litter size and weaning rate in pigs



Effects of environmental factors on litter size and weaning rate in pigs



Korean Journal of Animal Sciences 30(8): 470-476



Data on 1370 litters of Duroc, Hampshire, Landrace and Yorkshire pigs were analysed. Litter size at birth ranged from 8.06+or-0.20 in Yorkshires to 9.35+or-0.09 in Landraces, and litter size at weaning from 6.96+or-0.29 in Hampshires to 8.77+or-0.09 in Landraces.
