|Title:||Dam Attributes And Postnatal Piglet Survival||Contributor(s):||Tabuaciri, Poasa (author); Bunter, Kim L (author); Graser, Hans (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7200||Abstract:||Pre-weaning mortality is a production and welfare problem for modern production systems. Approximately 10 to 35% (Tyler et al. 1990) of newborn piglets die within the first three weeks of life, with more than 50% of deaths in the first three to five days post-farrowing. The main causes of preweaning deaths are starvation and crushing (Alonso-Spilsbury et al. 2007) and both sow and piglet attributes are implicated. This paper explores novel traits recorded on the sow pre- and post-farrowing to establish which dam level factors are associated with mortality of a sow's biological piglets.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||9th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP), Leipzig, Germany, 1-6 August, 2010||Conference Details:||9th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP), Leipzig, Germany, 1-6 August, 2010||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 9th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production||Publisher:||German Society for Animal Science||Place of Publication:||Germany||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.wcgalp2010.org/
