A total of 823 farrowing records representing five genetic groups of pigs Nigerian local pigs (NP), the Large White (LW), NP×LW, (NP×LW) ×LW, and (NP×LW) ×NP were used to investigate the effect of pig genotype on litter performance under the humid tropical conditions of Southwestern Nigeria. Past data records spanning a period of 12 years (1979 1990) were collected from the Swine Unit of the University Research Farm, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. Data were analyzed using least squares procedures.
