Growth rate in pigs was analysed by linear function, quadratic function and Brody and Schmalhausen functions in 6 pure and 6 two-breed crosses. It was shown that growth is genetically determined by heredity and the existence of significant heterosis and reciprocal effects was proven. Schmalhausen's ...
