Effect of age, body mass, and backfat thickness on appearance of puberty in gilts


Effect of age, body mass, and backfat thickness on appearance of puberty in gilts



Veterinarski Glasnik 55(3/4): 173-179



ISSN/ISBN: 0350-2457

Puberty in gilts is determined by the time of the first ovulation. Gilts could reach puberty earlier by increasing the growth rate and body fat reserves. The basic objective of these investigations was to establish whether backfat thickness in purebred or various mixed breed gilts, sacrificed at almost the same age, has an effect on the appearance of sexual maturity, and whether age and body mass can affect the time of appearance of puberty.
