Effect of different genotypes, sires and season of slaughtering on slaughter traits of pigs

Effect of different genotypes, sires and season of slaughtering on slaughter traits of pigs

Biotechnology in Animal Husbandry 19(1/2): 11-16

The effect of different genotypes, sires and season on age at slaughtering, mass of warm carcass sides, fat thickness measured on three points (withers, back and rump) and meat percentage in warm carcass sides of average mass (74.17 kg) was investigated. It was shown that the investigated traits did not vary between pigs of different genotypes. The sire affected variations of age at slaughter, fat thickness (withers, back, rump and back + rump) and meat percentage of the offspring (P<0.01).
