Effects of weaning weight and first week post-weaning growth on subsequent performance of pigs

Effects of weaning weight and first week post-weaning growth on subsequent performance of pigs

Jurnal Veterinar Malaysia 10(2): 47-50

One hundred and twelve weaned Landrace piglets, 30-32 days of age, were used to determine the effects of weaning weight and first week post-weaning growth on subsequent performance. Final liveweight was positively correlated (P<0.01) with both weaning weight and liveweight in the first week post-weaning. The relationships between weaning weight and feed intake and growth rate during the first week post-weaning and general performance were not significant.
