[en] Since 2007 the Walloon Region is acquiring a new advanced genetic evaluation program for Piétrain boars. Comprehensive models for routine genetic evaluation of boars involved in crossbreeding programs, using simultaneously data recorded on crossbred progeny at central test station and data recorded on-farm on purebred or crossbred pigs, are under development. Traits evaluated include growth, carcass quality traits and feed intake. Estimated breeding values allow breeders to select the best boars according to their selection objectives. But to have comprehensive models for crossbreeding performances, more advanced modelling of non-additive and crossbreeding effects will be added to current models. Additionally potential use of genomic information will be explored.
