Effect of birth weight on the performance of pigs. 1. Birth weight of suckling piglets



Effect of birth weight on the performance of pigs. 1. Birth weight of suckling piglets



Ciencia y Tecnica en la Agricultura, Ganado Porcino 11(1): 13-23



Data on 1570 crossbred piglets were analysed. For piglets born in July, birth weight, weaning weight and age at weaning averaged 1.2 kg, 6.0 kg and 31.8 days resp. vs. 1.2 kg, 6.1 kg and 32.4 days for those born in Jan., the difference between groups being significant for age at weaning. Sex of piglet had no significant effect on any of the above traits.
