AbstractFull Text

Data on body weight of Large White Yorkshire (50%) crosses (n=590) were recorded at weekly intervals from birth to weaning (8 weeks) for five filial generations and were and analysed by least-squares method. The overall mean birth weight was 1.03±0.01 kg. The birth weight gained significantly...

AbstractFull Text

The growth performance of hybrid piglets was studied during the suckling period. The piglets came from 21 litters, born by French hybrid sows (Y), ((Tai Zumu × Landrace) × Large White) inseminated by five terminal boars imported from France (D), (Large White × Pietrain). The following...

The body weights of Large White Yorkshire (LWY) crosses (50 and 75 per cent) were analysed at weekly intervals from birth to weaning. The overall birth weight was 1.16±0.01 kg. The 75 per cent LWY cross had significantly (P<0.01) higher birth weight than 50 per cent cross. The mean body weights...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate piglet preweaning survival and its relationship with a total merit index (TMI) used for selection of Large White terminal boars for dry-cured ham production. Data on 13,924 crossbred piglets (1,347 litters), originated by 189 Large White boars and 328 Large...

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

Data on 23 litters from Large White (LW) × (LW × Landrace) gilts and 33 litters from 11 LW × Landrace sows in Spain were analysed. Females were mated with a Dutch Landrace (DL) or a Piétrain × Duroc boar. There were significant differences between gilts and sows in average birth weight of female...

Abstract

Data on 3032 Large White piglets born in Brazil in 1984-87 were analysed. Piglet mortality to 21 days of age ranged from 7.1% to 99.7% for males and from 6.6 to 100% for females, and it was significantly higher for piglets with a low birth weight (<1.1 kg for females and <1.4 kg for males)...

Abstract

Data on 851 piglets in Venezuela (Large White, Landrace, Duroc and Hampshire purebreds and crosses involving these breeds) were analysed. Weaning weight averaged 4.93±0.14 kg for ♂♂ and 5.01±0.14 kg for ♀♀, and preweaning daily gains averaged 127±4.9 and 129±4.9 g resp., the differences between the ...

Abstract

Data collected during 1976-80 on 6070 Large White piglets in 682 litters, weaned at 8 wk of age, were analysed. Parity and season of birth had highly significant effects on litter size at birth and at weaning, and on preweaning mortality. Preweaning mortality was significantly higher in ♂♂ than in...

Abstract

For 1010 Large White piglets born in 125 litters during 1980-84, birth weight averaged 1.23 kg in ♂♂ and 1.21 kg in ♀♀. Weaning weight in 319 ♂♂ and 347 ♀♀ averaged 10.52 and 10.07 kg resp. Sex had a significant effect on weaning weight, while year and season of birth had significant effects on...
