Genetic Groups of Dam Lines in the Czech Pig Breeding Values Prediction
The Czech pig breeding programme is an open programme dependent on the imports of animals, mainly boars. The incorporating of animals with zero or weak relationship to domestic populations leads to underestimation of their breeding values. The inclusion of genetic groups into animal models provides certain solution of given problem. Genetic group methods allow genetic effects to be assigned to multiple groups within the base population of phantom parents with different group means (Quaas 1988).
