Effect of age at castration on certain growth characteristics of Hampshire barrows


Effect of age at castration on certain growth characteristics of Hampshire barrows



Indian Veterinary Journal 79(3): 262-264



ISSN/ISBN: 0019-6479

Studies on the effect of age at castration (3, 5, 7 and 9 weeks) in male Hampshire pigs (n=20) revealed that castration did not significantly influence the daily body weight gain and feed conversion efficiency (FCE). Its effect on height at withers and heart girth was also not significant. However, castration significantly influence the body length changes.
