Table 2 Mean (± SEM) litter sizes for haplotypes A to E

From: The relationship between mitochondrial DNA haplotype and the reproductive capacity of domestic pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus)

Haplotype Number of sows Number of litters Litter size (mean ± SEM) Number of stillborn (mean ± SEM) Number of live piglets (mean ± SEM)
A 30 164 10.74 ± 0.28 0.89 ± 0.11 9.85 ± 0.27
B 15 78 11.12 ± 0.41 0.97 ± 0.16 10.14 ± 0.40
C 19 120 12.38 ± 0.34* 1.07 ± 0.15 11.32 ± 0.30*
D 16 101 11.96 ± 0.45** 1.07 ± 0.16 10.89 ± 0.44
E 14 79 12.42 ± 0.40* 0.85 ± 0.15 11.57 ± 0.40*
  1. Statistical differences for each column were determined using ordinary one-way ANOVA followed by parametric multiple comparison against haplotype A
  2. *P < 0.01
