|Title:||Variability in growth and backfat of finisher pigs grown in superior and poor environments||Contributor(s):||Hermesch, Susanne (author) ; Li, Li (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/14316||Abstract:||Environmental stressors (ES) such as heat or social stress lead to inferior growth performance (Hyun et al., 1998) and increased fatness in some studies (Black et al., 2001). However, whether ES also affect variability of performance is less well understood. Individual effects of stressors are additive and mean performance of a group of pigs can be used to define superior and poor environments. This study aimed to establish whether variation in growth and backfat of pigs differed between superior and poor environments.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||APSA 2013: 14th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Pig Science Association, Melbourne, Australia, 24th - 27th November, 2013||Conference Details:||APSA 2013: 14th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Pig Science Association, Melbourne, Australia, 24th - 27th November, 2013||Source of Publication:||Manipulating Pig Production XIV: Proceedings of the Fourteenth Biennial Conference of the Australasian Pig Science Association (APSA), p. 214-214||Publisher:||Australasian Pig Science Association Inc||Place of Publication:||Werribee, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding
