Effect of different factors on weaning weight in large white Yorkshire, Desi and crossbred pigs



Effect of different factors on weaning weight in large white Yorkshire, Desi and crossbred pigs



Indian Veterinary Journal: 2, 156-158



The study was conducted to determine the effect of sex, genetic group, sire, litter size at birth, litter size at weaning and birth weight on the weaning weight of Large White, Yorkshire and Desi pig breeds and their crosses. Three groups of 20-25 female pigs belonging to Large White, Yorkshire, Desi and their crossbreds were used in the study. Results revealed that the sex of the piglet had no significant effect on weaning weight in all three genetic groups.
