A very small number of works dealing with the estimation of the he- ritabilities of direct and maternal effects of reproductive traits have been published. This deficiency is specially important in traits such as litter weight and individual mean weight at weaning and slaughter. Taking into consideration these facts the main purposes of this work have been trying to obtain estimates of these parameters in our populations and increasing the level of knowledge about the genetic determinism of them.
