Research is healthy and informative. Therefore, the OSB Pig Group is running a three year research which is to be conducted over a three year period to ascertain the sex ratio in seasonal farrowings and to conclude if indeed there are more boars or gilts born in the summer/winter months.
January 2021 findings are as follows:
170 born = 18 farrowings
Our OSBPG Supporters have been tremendous in supporting our research by taking part and making it a fun and interesting study to help establish and reach new conclusions. It makes fascinating reading. Should you wish to catch up on how our bloodlines have been doing over the years then please check out our bloodline data here
