Effect of index selection for reduced backfat thickness and increased growth rate on sow weight changes through two parities in swine


Effect of index selection for reduced backfat thickness and increased growth rate on sow weight changes through two parities in swine



Canadian Journal of Animal Science 72(2): 403-408



ISSN/ISBN: 0008-3984

DOI: 10.4141/cjas92-048

The impact of continued selection for reduced backfat thickness and improved growth rates on weight changes in Yorkshire and Hampshire sows, from breeding as gilts to weaning their second litter, was studied. Results suggest that some sow weight changes may have been influenced by selection pressure exerted.
