Abstract

The present investigation aimed to measure the growth rate and prolificacy among temperate rabbit breeds, namely New Zealand White and California rabbits, in Kaduna State, Nigeria. Breed effect on litter traits and body weight were analysed using the general linear model procedure of statistical...

Abstract

Gilt progeny (GP) are born and weaned lighter than sow progeny (SP) and have higher rates of mortality. This study aimed to quantify the performance and survival differences between GP and SP throughout the entire production cycle from birth to sale. Furthermore, the study looked at the effects of...

Abstract

The data on pre-weaning body weights and measurements of 1641 Deccani lambs generated in the field with the use of elite selected rams were recorded. The least squares means of body weights and measurements viz. height, length and girth of lambs at birth and weaning age (3 months) were worked out....

Abstract

This study focused on the effects on subsequent reproductive traits of females and development of the current litter as a result of different contact between the rabbit doe and its progeny when a temporary doe-litter separation was used for biostimulation. Immediately after parturition and...

Abstract

Birth weight increased with increasing parity number to the 5th in dams in the subhumid zone (SH, 1.89 kg) and to the 6th in dams in the humid zone (H, 1.71 kg) dams. Season did not significantly affect birth weight in either zone. Birth type (single vs. twins) had the greatest influence on birth...

Abstract

For 1112 Polwarth and 380 Corriedale lambs born in Brazil in 1979-87, birth weight averaged 3.54 and 3.79 kg respectively for males and 3.35 and 3.49 kg for females, the differences between the breeds and sexes being significant. Birth weight was significantly affected by year of birth and age of...

Abstract

An account is given of the effects of predators, diseases, management, birth weight and breed type of calf and udder conformation, parity and origin of dam (indigenous or imported) on calf preweaning mortality in Guyana. Mortality decreased with increasing birth weight, and was lower than average...

Abstract

For 177 Anglo-Nubian × Crioulo goats in Brazil, birth weight averaged 2.68 kg, and body weight at 28, 56, 84 and 112 days of age 5.4, 7.61, 9.23 and 10.78 kg respectively. Birth weight was significantly correlated with all body weights (0.68, 0.63, 0.58 and 0.45 respectively), daily gain from birth ...

Abstract

Of 566 Ashgur and 973 Watish lambs born in Sudan in 1979-81, 77 and 87% respectively survived to weaning. Mortality was significantly higher in twin-born than in single-born lambs (25 and 13% respectively), and mortality was lower for lambs from 4-tooth than from 2-tooth ewes (12 vs. 30%), but...

Abstract

In a large semifine-wooled mutton-wool flock, mortality to 20 days of age ranged from 63.5% for single-born ram lambs weighing <1.5 kg at birth to 4.3% for single-born ewe lambs weighing 4.1-4.5 kg. The genetic correlation of body weight of the dams at 100 days of pregnancy with birth weight of...
