The effect of selection on average daily live weight gain of finishing pigs



The effect of selection on average daily live weight gain of finishing pigs



Izvestiya Timiryazevskoi Sel' skokhozyaistvennoi Akademii ( 2): 150-156



Data are given on the performance of Russian Large White pigs of 5 generations in a herd in which a selection intensity of 50% for average daily gain was applied. In the 5 generations, daily gain during finishing averaged 492, 527, 541, 563 and 583 g respectively, carcass length 124, 125, 126, 126 and 126 cm, and backfat thickness at the 6th-7th ribs 29.8, 28.8, 28.0, 27.0 and 27.2 mm.
