Genetic parameters of early neo-natal piglet survival and number of piglets born



Genetic parameters of early neo-natal piglet survival and number of piglets born



Proceedings of the 7th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Montpellier, France, August, 2002 Session 3: 1-4



Using the history of sow productivity records collected in Ontario, Canada, this study set out to determine if there is a detectable genetic relationship between total number born (NB) and number dead (ND) defined as stillbirths plus early neo-natal piglet mortality.
