Studies on litter size and weight at birth and at weaning in large white yorkshire



Studies on litter size and weight at birth and at weaning in large white yorkshire



Indian Journal of Animal Research 22(1): 5-7



The data on the litter size and litter weight at birth and at weaning were recorded for four generations in Large White Yorkshire pigs. The overall heritability estimates of all these character were 0.45 .+-. 0.25, 0.43 .+-. 0.30, 0.35 .+-. 0.40 and 0.40 .+-. 0.27 respectively for litter size at birth, at weaning and litter weight at birth and at weaning. The genotypic, phenotypic and environmental correlation between various traits studied in four generation showed highly significant and positive relationship among them.
