Highly significant (P 0.01) difference beteen the six genetic groups in respect of litter size
at birth, litter weight at birth, litter size at weaning and litter weight at weaning were found. Litter
size at birth varied from 5.20 in LN to 6.00 in LS with an average of 5.68. Litter size at birth of LS,
SN and NS were significantly (P 0.05) higher than that in SL ad LN. Litter weight at birth in LS,
SN and NS were significantly higher than that in SL, NL and LN. The litter weight at birth ranged
from 465 g in LS to 391g in NL with an average of 429g. The highest litter size at weaning was
observed to be 5.51 in NS with an overall mean value of 4.99. Litter weight at weaning was highest in SN i.e. 3.362 kg with an average value of 3.078 kg.
