Stochastic simulation was used to compare the efficiency of 3 pig breeding schemes based on either traditional genetic evaluation or genomic evaluation. The simulated population contained 1,050 female and 50 male breeding animals. It was selected for 10 yr for a synthetic breeding goal that included 2 traits with equal economic weights and heritabilities of 0.2 or 0.4. The reference breeding scheme, named BLUP-AM, was based on the phenotyping of all candidates (13,770 animals/yr) for Trait 1… CONTINUE READING
