Current problems of finishing and carcass performance testing in pigs



Current problems of finishing and carcass performance testing in pigs



Archiv fur Tierzucht 33(1): 83-92



Data were analysed on station test results for 394 German Landrace, 288 Edelschwein, 324 Leicoma and 183 Schwerfort Meat boars (1609, 1179, 1100 and 989 progeny/sibs resp.) at 7, 5, 4 and 2 testing stations. Graphs of data on the 4 breeds at 4 different stations showed no consistent relationships of feed consumption and percentage of carcass lean to final live weight on test. Genetic and phenotypic correlations among finishing traits and carcass lean percentage are tabulated.
