Effect of some environmental factors on litter size of Pelibuey ewes

Effect of some environmental factors on litter size of Pelibuey ewes

Revista de Produccion Animal, Cuba 7(3): 161-162

Data on 2355 lambings of Pelibuey ewes in 8 flocks over a period of 3 years were analysed. Litter size at birth was significantly affected by flock, and litter size at weaning (at 90 days) was significantly affetced by year of lambing and flock, but neither trait was significantly affected by month of lambing.
