Abstract:

The objective of the study was to assess the variability in the age at attainment puberty of growing pigs under intensive rearing practices and local managemental conditions in the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Lakhimpur adopted village for doubling farmer’s income. 15 nos. of weaned Hampshire cross female pigs made the treatment group while 15 nos. of local pigs constituted the control group. The animals were reared under intensive rearing system with locally made pig sty. Feeding of the animals was done with equal amounts of kitchen waste and concentrated feed. To determine the age at puberty, individual animals were exposed to boar and the behavioural and physical signs were observed. Statistical analysis revealed significant difference (P<0.01) in the mean age at puberty between treatment and the control group.
