DATA on 205 litters (1840 piglings) of 88 sows were collected from 9 stud farms for breeding Middle Whites. Data were analysed by the same methous as were used previously. The coefficient of correlation between litter size and the number of viable piglings per litter was 0. 8956 +or- 0. 014, the av. number of piglings (stillborn and viable) per litter being 8. 98+or-0. 19, and the av. number of viable piglings per litter 8. 93 +or- 0. 16.
