In an inbred pig family founded by commercial breeds, nine microsatellite markers from porcine chromosome 4 were screened to find associations with weight gain and fat deposition traits. In this family showing a linear decrease in weight gain with inbreeding, an association (P <0.05) was found...
The effect of slatted versus solid floors in the dung area of farrowing pens on the health and production of pigs from birth to weaning was studied. In half of the farrowing pens, evenly distributed within a unit, the plastic slats were glued together to form a solid surface and only urine...
The effect of weaning pigs in pens with slatted versus solid floor dung alleys, and of moving at weaning, was studied on pigs from 201 litters. Weaning was at 5 weeks and no litters were mixed. Four treatments were performed: slatted + moved, slatted + not moved, solid + moved and solid + not...
The effects of gender, low-voltage electrical stimulation (LV-ES; 90 V, 15 Hz, 20 s), chilling rate and ageing time on the tenderness of hot-boned M. longissimus dorsi were studied on 47 Norwegian Cattle carcasses. There were 24 female cattle (14?96 months) and 23 bulls (15?24 months) in the...
Genetic and environmental correlations were estimated both between the ability to show oestrus and milk production, and among different fertility traits (heat-intensity score, number of days between consecutive inseminations, number of inseminations per service period, interval between calving...
