A study was carried out from December 2011 to August 2012 to evaluate reproductive performance of nucleus herd of stress negative Piétrain (Piétrain) and Duroc pigs raised at the experimental farm of Hanoi University of Agriculture. A total of 35 gilts, including 21 Piétrain (11 with halothane genotype CC and 10 with CT) and 14 Duroc CC gilts were monitored for their reproductive performance. Piétrain boars (3 CC and 5 CT) were mated to Piétrain and Duroc gilts to produce Piétrain purebred and crossbred Piétrain x Duroc pigs. Results showed that genotype of the boar and the sow affected body weight and litter weight at birth and at weaning (P<0.05). Total number of pigs born, number born alive, number alive to weaning, individual bodyweight at birth, individual bodyweight at weaning, litter weight at birth, litter weight at weaning, survival rate at birth, survival rate to weaning were 9.91, 9.26, 8.11 piglets, 1.4, 6.4, 12.97, 51.96kg, 94.32 and 88.55%, respectively. Body weight and litter weight at birth and at weaning of piglets from Piétrain CC boars were higher than those of piglets from Piétrain CT boars (P<0.05). Reproductive performance was highest for Duroc CC sows, followed by Piétrain CC and lowest for Piétrain CT sows (P<0.05). Reproductive performance of the nucleus herd could be improved by using Piétrain CC boars mated to Piétrain CC sows and Duroc CC sows. [less ▲]

【Objective】A 2×2 factorial trial was carried out to determine effects of genotype and nutrition on improved growth performance, carcass characteristics, and meat properties of goats in Laos. 【Method】The indigenous goat breed (Lat) was used as the control in comparison with F1 (BT×L) as a result of crossbreeding Lat does with Bach Thao bucks imported from Vietnam. For each genotype, 30 growing male goats at age of 7 months were chosen and equally divided into 2 groups, one was raised according to the traditional feeding regime (free ranging only) and the other with an improved feeding regime including cassava hay and mineral block provided ad libitum in addition to free ranging. The animals were observed for the average daily gain (ADG) and at the end, three animals per group were slaughtered to determine carcass characteristics (physical composition, primal cuts), and meat properties (shear force, color, pH, drip loss, and cooking loss). 【Result】The results showed that the ADG of F1(60.02 g/head/day) was very much higher (56.09%) than that of the indigenous goat (38.45 g/head/day). The ADG of goats supplemented with cassava hay and mineral block (55.45g/head/day)was also significantly higher (28.89%) than that of those not supplemented (43.02 g/head/day). No significant (P >0.05)effects of the crossbreeding and supplementation were found for dressing percentage and percentages of shoulder-foreleg, rump-rearleg, and breast-rip cuts in the carcass; however, the F1 had a bigger neck (P<0.01) but a smaller loin-abdomen cut (P<0.01) compared with the indigenous goat. No significant differences were observed for the parameters of meat characteristics between Lat and F1 goats under the two different feeding regimes. 【Conclusion】It was therefore concluded that crossbreeding with Bach Thao bucks and supplementation of cassava hay and mineral block improved meat yield without negative effects on meat quality of goats in Laos.
