Effect of floor area per pig on the fattening performance of hybrid pigs

, : Effect of floor area per pig on the fattening performance of hybrid pigs. ITEA, Produccion Animal 88A(3): 213-219

During the growing (33-66 kg body weight) and finishing (66-90 kg) periods, 120 Large White (LW) X Landrace and Landrace X LW pigs were each allotted 0.64 or 0.84 msuperscript 2 floor space (17 or 13 pigs per pen).
