A study of the utilisation of central pig testing stations in France

A study of the utilisation of central pig testing stations in France
In France, central pig testing stations have been used to evaluate young boars since 1986. Their use was recently modified for animal health reasons. Testing stations now only receive carcasses of the collateral relatives of boars subjected to on-farm testing. To evaluate the effect of this change on testing results, a pig selection scheme was modelled, and applied to a reference population equivalent, demographically and genetically, to the French Large White dam population.
