Abstract

Maternal breeds for sows have been bred for high prolificacy during recent decades. Although large litters may be beneficial for economic efficiency, pre-weaning mortality is increased. Thus, focus should instead be put on new traits such as piglet vitality (PV). Until now, no validated scoring...

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to determine the influences of temperature, humidity, and temperature-humidity index (THI) on piglet preweaning mortality in a conventional open-housing system commercial swine herd in Thailand. The analyzed data included 11,157 litters from 3574 Landrace ×...

Abstract

The effect of genotype and litter size on pre-weaning and post weaning body weight and linear body measurements of rabbits was observed using two breeds of rabbits-Dutch belted (Dutch) (DUT) and New Zealand White (NZW) rabbits. Four genetic groups were generated from the two breeds namely: (DUT X...

Abstract

Data from 2438 calvings born to 682 cows recorded from 2004 to 2015 in an extensive production system were used, to investigate factors associated with abortion and calf mortality until weaning. Cows belonged to Brahman, Nellore, Guzerat and Brown Swiss × Zebu breed groups. Data were analyzed using ...

AbstractFull Text

The characterization of genetic resources is an important activity because it provides knowledge for designing appropriate strategies for the use of these and establishes comparisons with other populations. The objective of the present study was to document how the weight of heifers at 15 months of ...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the present work was to characterize the growth of Argentine Creole heifers from birth to mating at 15 months. For 4 years a total of 135 heifers were evaluated. Four treatments were performed according to the weight at beginning of mating: <200 kg (T1), 201-230 kg (T2), 231-250 ...
