Abstract

In 41 litters totalling 319 piglings (including 169 Large Whites and 121 Berkshires) the relationship of weight at birth, 3 wks. and 8 wks. to position of teat sucked, normalized social rank and litter size was studied by regression analysis. Birth weight and teat position accounted for 40% of the...

Abstract

Large White and Berkshire pigs were observed from 8 to 16 weeks of age in pens of 6 to 10 pigs. Large Whites were more aggressive than Berkshires. Social rank was positively correlated with initial weight. Initial weight and social rank both influenced growth; the relative effect of rank compared...

Abstract

At approx. 6 mths. of age, 2 groups of Australorps were housed resp. on deep litter floors or in individual cages. Birds were scored for aggressiveness in paired encounters with 6 panels of birds. There were no significant regressions of egg weight or egg number on aggressiveness score for caged...

Abstract

Data were recorded on 514 Large White, Berkshire, Tamworth and crossbred piglings in 60 litters of 39 sows. There was a significant regression of position of teat sucked on birth weight (-0.44)Thus the larger piglings were more successful in obtaining the anterior teats. 17.5% of piglings sucked...

Abstract

From 8 to 16 wks. of age, pigs were housed in groups of 6-10 animals. Pens were constituted so as to vary as widely as possible in sex, breed and number of pigs. No group contained pigs differing in age by >3 days. The observed behaviour patterns are described. There was a highly significant...

Abstract

Data were recorded on piglings in 41 Large White and Berkshire litters. Weights at 1 day, 3 wks. and 8 wks. were converted into deviations from the litter average to eliminate between-Utter differences. Runts were arbitrarily defined as individuals in the bottom 5% of the body weight distribution...
