Utilization of the BLUP animal model for the genetic evaluation of pigs at French testing stations. Principals and first results



Utilization of the BLUP animal model for the genetic evaluation of pigs at French testing stations. Principals and first results



Journees de la Recherche Porcine en France 27: 135-141



The new genetic evaluation programme for pigs in France is described. The 1st step in this programme is the evaluation of young boars at performance testing stations. The computational principles on which the evaluations are based are presented, and the first 26 batches of published results are discussed. Graphs are given illustrating the genetic trends for 7 performance traits in 1988-93.
