Figure 5 : Effect of minimum temperature (LT) from December to March on probabilities of sows having stillborn piglets (A) and on the number of stillborn piglets (B) for sows that farrowed 8 and 16 pigs (10th or 90th percentile, respectively)1,2.

1The regression coefficients of the LT term for sows that farrowed 8 pigs did not differ from zero (P=0.89). 2The regression coefficients of the LT term for sows that farrowed 16 pigs differed from zero (P<0.05). The dotted lines represent the 95% confidence intervals for predicted means.
