The effects of photoperiod and movement on the onset of sexual maturity of gilts



The effects of photoperiod and movement on the onset of sexual maturity of gilts



Pol' nohospodarstvo 37(9-10): 807-815



For 40 gilts that been housed from 2 months of age in pens (4 msuperscript 2 per gilt) with 16 h light daily, or in boxes (1.9 msuperscript 2 per gilt) with 8 h light daily, age at sexual maturity averaged 196.8 and 227.8 days resp., and body weight 103.4 and 114.0 kg. All gilts were slaughtered in the 2nd dioestrus of their 3rd sexual cycle.
