Studies on litter traits in Desi and crossbred pigs

Indian Journal of Animal Research 30(2): 134-136
Studies on litter traits in Desi and crossbred pigs
Data on 366 litters of Desi Landrace x Desi and 3/4 Landrace x 1/4 Desi sows at the Indian Veterinary Research Institute pig unit were analysed. Year of farrowing affected litter size and litter weight at birth and weaning. Month of farrowing only affected litter weight at birth and weaning in Desi pigs, and litter size at weaning in 3/4-Landrace x 1/4-Desi pigs. Parity of the sow affected litter size at birth in Desi pigs and litter size at birth in 3/4 Landrace x 1/4 Desi pigs.
