Abstract
An evaluation was conducted of a small Cuban Creole pig herd constituting a genetic reservoir located at the rural cooperative "Diez de Octubre", Cabaiguán, in the Cuban province of Sancti Spitirus, in the middle of the country. An examination was carried out of housing and management at several growth stages of animals, comprising feeding and physical status of the herd. The animals were kept under basic principles for management and genetic control for conservation of this genotype, which is a national genetic heritage. Individual identification and management of growing pigs followed recommended basic standards. Feeding was based on supplying in mixed conventional (concentrate) and non conventional (crop residues and byproducts) feedstuffs. There were acceptable records concerning the herd, involving the required basic control indices. It is evident the urgent necessity of replace the boars for at least another two lines to avoid inbreeding. Furthermore, perfection of the technological scheme is recommended, as well as that relative to primary information, together with put in practice exchange of breeding animals with those from other genetic reservoir sites. The contribution of this cooperative to onservation of the Cuban Creole pig is highly cknowledged.
