the objective of the present research was to determine the influence of ambient air temperature in the farrowing section of a pig facility on chemical composition, colostrum and milk somatic cell counts (scc), and rearing efficiency of piglets from polish landrace (pl) sows with identified genotype at the RYR1 locus. subjects were 60 pl sows in the second and third reproductive cycle. polymorphism at the RYR1 locus was analysed using the pcr-rflp method. the proportion of RYR1 c/c and RYR1 c/t… CONTINUE READING
