Abstract

Pre-farrowing behaviour of gilts from a number of pig lines selected for efficient lean growth was examined to determine if particular selection strategies were associated with specific behaviours immediately prior to farrowing. Selection strategies for components of efficient lean growth rate, based on adlibitum feeding, can focus on production traits without anticipating correlated responses in pre-farrowing posture and behaviour traits of gilts.
