Pig Growth Rate

The growth rate of domestic swine is significantly different from that of miniature breeds. There has been many questions relating to this topic, This is what the research teams with Gottening research stated: The epiphyses of the long bones are not completely closed in domestic swine until approximately 3.5 years. Miniature swine vary depending upon the stature of the animal. For example, Yucatan micro swine have epiphyseal closure at 1.5 – 2.0 years, whereas standard Yucatans have closure at 3.0 – 3.5 yrs.
