Growth performance and SSAW were statistically analyzed using the general linear model procedure of SAS (2004), and the mean AW and NW of geese were compared by using the LSMEANS statement.
The effects of stocking density and genetic line on SSAW and IAW in White Roman geese during 6 to 14 weeks of age are shown in Table 4.
No significant difference was observed in SSAW and IAW among the three stocking densities at 6 weeks of age (Table 4), suggesting that the HD applied in this study presented a satisfactory growth performance but not sufficient space for avoiding IAW.
2012) reported that the SSAW and IAW of White Roman goslings with AW at 8 weeks of age were 1.
In this study, the SSAW and IAW results revealed that AW was more severe in AL than in NL.
The project is entering a new phase of development aimed at boosting international awareness of the quality of education offered by SSAW courses and developing relationships within the creative industries.
She has a strong network of contacts within the creative industries sector in Wales, upon which she can draw to create further work experience opportunities for SSAW students and graduates.
Hannah Raybould, project manager of SSAW, added: "The two team members are coming on board in an exciting period for SSAW, as we put renewed efforts into our growing relationship with key companies and organisations working in film in Wales and the rest of the UK.
