Effects of primary selection of growing sows at age of eight weeks based on body weight or backfat thickness upon the secondary selection at body weight of ninety kg


Effects of primary selection of growing sows at age of eight weeks based on body weight or backfat thickness upon the secondary selection at body weight of ninety kg



Japanese Journal of Swine Science 26(3): 218-224



An analysis was made of data on 624 Landrace from the 1st-5th generations of a selection programme in which were selected primarily on body weight and backfat thickness at 8 wk of age, and were selected secondarily on daily gain up to 90 kg body weight and backfat thickness and eye-muscle area at 90 kg.
