Estimation of the effects of selection on French Large White reproductive performance using frozen semen.


Genetic trends for male and female sexual development and components of litter size and weight at birth (LB) as well as traits related to sow lifetime productivity were estimated in a French Large White (LW) pig population using frozen semen. Two experimental groups (EXP = L77 and L98) were produced by inseminating LW sows with either stored frozen semen… (More)
