Abstract

Preweaning growth traits and neonatal weakness (NW) were studied in Red (RB, n=82) and Grey Brahman (GB, n=37) calves. At birth, males calves were heavier than females (31.6±0.9 vs. 28.5±0.8 kg; P<0.002), calves experiencing NW were lighter (29.0±1.1 vs. 31.2±0.6 kg; P<0.06) than normals, and ...

Abstract

Weaning performance of 1393 purebred calves for heritability, genetic, phenotypic, and environmental correlation, as well as factors influencing weaning performance (year of birth, season of birth, sex, and number of calving) were evaluated. Traits included were weaning weight (WW), preweaning...

Abstract

A trial was conducted to determine pre-and postweaning performance of pigs injected with dexamethasone either 1 or 24 h after birth. In Exp. 1, a total of 225 pigs (Triumph4 × PIC Camborough 22) were assigned according to birth weight and sex to 3 treatments. Treatments included either saline...

Abstract

Despite higher fecundity, the Black Bengal goat generally has lower milk production, which is often insufficient for their multiple kids. However, milk requirement of Black Bengal kids is poorly defined. The present trial was designed to determine the requirement and intake of milk of preweaned...

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

Non-genetic sources of variation were investigated for preweaning performance of Creole goats of Guadeloupe using 6375 individual records collected from 1980 to 1994. The analysed sources of variation were litter size, sex, lactation number, year and season of kiddings. Age at first kidding...
