The assessment of productive and reproductive performances of indigenous or so called desi pigs in different parts of India is limited. Hence, the present study was framed on reproduction or sow traits of desi pigs under an organized farm condition. Data’s of litter size and litter weight of birth and weaning was collected from organized farm and utilized for statistical analysis. The overall mean of litter size at birth, litter size at weaning, litter weight at birth and litter weight at weaning were 5.597±1.08, 5.557±0.59, 4.363±0.712 and 26.17±3.162 respectively. Significant effect was encountered on period of birth and parity and no significant effect was noticed on season of birth in sow traits.
