Samenvatting (EN)

Through genetic selection and improvement of environment, litter size of sows increases. Increased energy requirement during lactation, increases the risk of excessive mobilization of body stores, with detrimental effects on reproductive performance. Feed intake capacity tends to decrease due to selection towards leaner pigs with a lower feed conversion ratio. The aim of this project is to ivestigate how to facilitate sows to wean large litters, through genetic measures
