R.G. Chabo, P.T. Baitsile, P.P. Rabanna


The performance of Tswana pigs was studied under traditional management systems. Tswana pigs performed poorer than other indigenous African pigs in reproduction and growth traits except in survival rate.

The survival of these pigs is dependent on their natural adaptation to the local conditions.
