Abstract

The efficiency of progeny testing vs individual testing on selection index of swine performance registration in Taiwan was evaluated. Prediction of the efficiency of indirect selection boar vs direct individual selection was derived from Pirchner's formula bgV pA per h2. Data on relationships between testing boars on Central Testing Station (CTS) and Progeny Testing Station (PTS) were used. The bBVPA were estimated for various h2 values from 0.1 to 0.9 and showed that prediction of the efficiency of a boar performance selected on progeny average was quite accurate in Taiwan
