Abstract

Negative effects of excessive use of energy, protein, calcium and phosphorus sources and decrease of amount of fibers in pre-starter and starter feed rations during fattening of piglets, especially after weaning, on survival rates and growing of piglets are considered. It is stated that unbalanced...

AbstractFull Text

Background: Mink are an important animal commodity group in Canada and excessive kit mortality represents a significant loss to production. National biosecurity standards have been developed for Canadian mink farms, but it is unclear how well these standards have been implemented as there are no...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to develop a computer-based system to assess deviations in the pig production process in German farms at an early age and provide indications of potential causes of variations. The analysed parameters included litter size, return to oestrus, number of piglets weaned and...

Abstract

Data on pre-weaning mortality of 12 727 live-born piglets from 1338 litters recorded at the pig breeding farm of the University of Kiel (Germany) from 1989 to 1994 were analysed. Deviances due to risk factors were estimated by generalized linear model and their odds-ratios by generalized linear...

Abstract

The genetic association between individual birth weight and litter birth weight (LBW) was analysed on records of 14 950 crossbred pigs born between 1988 and 1994 at the pig breeding farm of the University of Kiel, Germany. Phenotypically, preweaning mortality of pigs decreased with an increase in...

Abstract

The effects of rest-area floor type and heating method on the behaviour and growth of 1132 piglets from 4 to 21 days of age were investigated. The ideal temperature (39-41°C) was attained in areas with concrete-tiled floors, using 6 electrical heating tracks or with plastic floors, heated by warm...

Abstract

A German Landrace population was divided into 2 herds, an S herd (selected for av. daily gain of piglets from 1 to 21 days of age) and an F herd (selected for litter size at weaning). Half of the piglets produced in each herd were crossfostered to the other herd. Results are presented for 2 periods ...

Abstract

Data on 326 000 calves, born in the German Federal Republic over a 6-yr period, were analysed. Calf mortality increased from 7.6% in 1973 to 11.8% in 1979. Of the calves lost, 94% died within 3 months of birth, and mortality was higher for calves born in winter than for those born in summer....

Abstract

Of 4332 calvings in 1965-76 at 4 experimental farms in the German Federal Republic, 47.8% required no assistance, 32.0% required some assistance by 1-2 persons, 17.3% required considerable assistance by 2-3 persons, and 2.9% required veterinary assistance. The incidence of dystocia was 35.4% for...
