Author(s): N Ahmed, S Doley, K Ahmed, BB Das, S Sinha and S Sinha

Abstract: This study was undertaken to provide baseline performances of local pigs’ productivity of rural areas of Unakoti district of Tripura, which was previously lacking. The number of sows reared by each household was 2.2±1.2 and mostly non-descriptive. The average age at first breeding 9.1±3.6 months. Sows were 13.1±3.6 months old when they farrowed for the first time. Sows were bred at 2.5±0.9 month after weaning of piglets and breeding was done 2.1± 0.3 days after onset of estrus. The average litter sized obtained was recorded as 9.1±4.6. In conclusion, owners need to be encouraged to maximize the opportunity for reproductive performance.
