[en] Until recently, Piétrain boars in the Walloon Region were evaluated with performances recorded on their purebred progeny. However, these boars are mostly used in crossbreeding systems. Therefore, since 2007, a new genetic evaluation system has been developed in the Walloon Region. Piétrain boars are now evaluated on performances recorded on their crossbred progeny with Landrace sows. The aim of this study was to contribute to the new genetic evaluation system of these boars by the development of a genetic evaluation model for carcass quality. The objective was to develop a tool that allows selection of boars that produce carcass with a high lean meat percentage.
