Comparison of selection criteria for genetic evaluation of swine under on-farm test


Comparison of selection criteria for genetic evaluation of swine under on-farm test



Ars Veterinaria 17(3): 230-237



The aim of this work was to compare the effect of using, as selection criteria, average daily gain (ADG), off-test age (A95) and number of days on test (ND95), to reach 95 kg of live-weight, on rank of swines which are under on-farm test. The records of 17 836 Landrace, 9334 Large White and 5532 Pietrain pigs, which were born between 1991 and 1998, were used. The pigs were bred in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
