Within-Litter Birth Weight Variation in the Domestic Pig and its Relation to Pre-Weaning Survival, Weight Gain, and Variation in Weaning Weights
Abstract To determine the relationship between within-litter birth weight variation and pre-weaning survival and weight gain, and to provide practical guidance on fostering low-birth-weight piglets,Expand

Birth weight variation in the domestic pig: effects on offspring survival, weight gain and suckling behaviour.
In domestic pigs, litter-mates often vary considerably in birth weight. To examine whether this size variation influences piglet survival, weight gain and suckling behaviour, we experimentallyExpand

Neonatal-piglet weight variation and its relation to pre-weaning mortality and weight gain on commercial farms.
To determine the effect of within-litter neonatal-weight variation on pre-weaning mortality and weight gain, we analyzed piglet survival and weight gain within 400 litters from 10 commercial farms.Expand

The utility of ketoprofen for alleviating pain following dehorning in young dairy calves.
To determine if ketoprofen, in addition to local anaesthesia, reduces pain following dehorning, we experimentally dehorned dairy calves, less than 2 weeks of age, with (20 calves) or without (20Expand

The Effect of Littermate Weight on Survival, Weight Gain, and Suckling Behavior of Low-Birth-Weight Piglets in Cross-Fostered Litters
Methods: We manipulated the number and size of foster littermates for low-birthweight piglets in 31 small (eight or nine piglets) and 22 large (11 or 12 piglets) litters. Experimental litters wereExpand
