Identifying and evaluating alternative genetic sources can be a daunting task for producers. Large numbers of live animal and semen suppliers exist, and all claim to have the ideal genetic package to meet the industry needs. While the claims may indeed be true, producers must be able to understand the fundamental process of evaluating genetic “value” and how genetic improvement principles. 1) sow productivity (number in litter/litter weight at 21 days), 2) growth weight, 3) feed efficiency, 4) carcass traits (pounds of acceptable-quality pork), 5) skeletal soundness ___________ in swine is widely used whereby the outstanding traits of 2+ breeds are combined and heterosis increases the pounds of market pigs sold per litter.

The level of performance did not increase, over the period studied, for any of the traits studied except loin eye area. The lack of increase in level of performance may be due to a lack of sufficient selection pressure, detrimental environmental effects or the depression in performance due to by: 1.

SOME GENETIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS AFFECTING PERFORMANCE AND CARCASS MEASUREMENTS IN SWINE I. INTRODUCTION Performance merit in livestock is determined by their capacity for economical reproduction and production. In swine this is a com-posite of fecundity, liveability, rate of gain, efficiency of feed utiliza-tion and carcass quality.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate non-genetic effects on growth and carcass traits within the two major South African commercial pig breeds. The environmental component is not passed from parent to progeny and, therefore, needs to be accounted for when determining the genetic value of an animal.
Some of the environmental factors such as parity of sow or sex can be accounted for mathematically. However, other factors such as health, management and feed cannot be accounted for as easily. Genetic Relationships Between Performance Traits. For genetic improvement through selection, variation amongst animals is required.
Variation observed in a population is composed of two primary factors, genotype and environment. Conventional selection relies on the fact that use of exceptional individuals, as parents of the next generation will.
To improve growth rate and carcass performance some farmers have begun cross-breeding wild boar with domestic pigs within their breeding programme, known as hybrids.

Mote, Max F. Rothschild. There are many factors involved in reaching good feed efficiency including genetic, diet, feed, management, housing and environment.
Temperature is the single most important environmental. After live estimates were statistically compared with carcass measurements, the coefficients of determination of either a weight-adjusted or a weight-unadjusted basis indicated that trained personnel could account for more than half of the variation in carcass traits and that their estimates account for, on the average, over twice the variation accounted for by untrained personnel.
The pig’s performance is the result of two influences: genetics and environment. Because the genetics of a pig plays an important role in its performance and meat quality, all pig producers should be familiar with the potential and application of genetic selection.
More recently, swine breeding programs have aimed to include pork quality and novel carcass (e.g., specific primal cuts such as the Boston butt or belly that are not commonly used in selection indexes) and belly traits together with growth, feed efficiency and carcass leanness in the selection indexes of terminal-sire lines, in order to efficiently produce pork with improved quality at a low.
For example increased growth rate in pigs is often associated with increased fat deposition. The total phenotypic relationship is due to both genetic and environmental factors that affect both traits. For example, availability of food or exposure to disease organisms probably affects both growth and backfat, but some genes also affect both traits.

The measurement of backfat thickness by live probing techniques is comparatively recent (Hazel and Kline, ), so that most studies of backfat thickness are based on carcass rather than live measure ments.
While the two measurements are not identical they are highly correlated. Carcass traits such as backfat thickness are, in general, moreAuthor: David Frame Cox. INTRODUCTION. The demand for higher quality meat by consumers has been steadily growing. Both meat quality and carcass composition traits are becoming important in swine breeding programs because of their increased economic value (Dransfield et al., ).Until the recent past, producers were paid for the weight of carcass as opposed to the weight of each primal cut (Miar et Cited by: 2.Genetic and environmental influences on growth Table 1 Independent variables included in the analysis of data on height Table 2 Final model using stepwise regression procedurein the representative sample (England and Scotland combined) and the inner city sample.
