The value of boar mating traits for selection


, : The value of boar mating traits for selection. Archiv fur Tierzucht 36(3-4): 409-419

From an analysis of data recorded at large pig farms in the former German Democratic Republic in 1978-1985, the hsuperscript 2s of number of live births per litter, percentage of sows farrowing after the 1st insemination, and the number of live births per 100 first inseminations were 0.05+or-0.10, 0.18+or-0.09 and 0.23+or-0.09 resp. for Landrace boars, and 0.06+or-0.10, 0.18+or-0.10 and 0.16+or-0.10 for Edelschwein boars.

Yet, parasite infection of females can alter their mate preferences, thereby mitigating selection on male traits. Here, we show...
