It is important to understand the biological factors influencing the poorer lifetime performance of gilt progeny in comparison to ..
Poorer lifetime growth performance of gilt progeny compared with sow progeny is largely due to weight differences at birth and reduced growth in the preweaning period, and is not improved by progeny segregation after weaning
