A.S. Series 73-46
Little information is available concerning conditions present at the time of parturition in swine. This study was conducted to determine whether the succession at birth was related to weight at birth, sex, condition (whether alive or stillborn) and time interval between pigs. Possible relationships between birth weight, sex, farrowing order, farrowing interval and stillbirths were also studied.
