We present data from our studies in pigs which demonstrate the existence of breed and sex differences and of seasonal variation in the majority of cellular and humoral immunological parameters measured . There peatability was high concerning immunoglobulin levels inserum and T-cell  dependent cellular parameters as well as the results of a phagocytosis assay . B-cell dependent parameters however , showed only poor repeatability .
