Abstract

As part of Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research supported project 'Breeding and feeding pigs in Australia and Vietnam', herds of Australian Yorkshire or Large White (AY) and Duroc (AD) were bred from Australian breeding stock sent to the Institute of Agricultural Sciences of South Vietnam's Pig Research Centre at Binh Thang in 1995. Comparisons were made between Australian and Vietnamese stock in performance and reproductive traits. Used both as pure and cross, the Australian breeds showed significant advantage over Vietnamese breeds in growth, efficiency and carcass lean and in littering performance
