  The total number of born piglets increases with parities, but the higher prolificacy results in lower individual average birth weights and more heterogeneous litters. Variations in piglets’ birthweights are related to their number of muscular fibers resulting in variable performances after birth (Rehfeldt and Kuhn 2006).   The skeletal muscle in mammals begins to be developed ...
