Litter characteristics: 16-15-14

Standard: 16 piglets total born, 15 piglets born alive, 14 piglets weaned. Our sustainable breeding goal for litter characteristics is that any increase in total born must be accompanied by the same (or more) increase in born alive and weaned.

If the sow cannot farrow and raise extra piglets, it is not sustainable improvement. This number of piglets is also related to the number of functional teats the sows have.
