Abstract: The terminal sire line breeding objective (BO) in pigs may include meat and carcase quality (MCQ) traits because of growing consumer interest for pork quality. However, MCQ traits are hard to measure and not routinely recorded. Genomic selection could be an option to improve the MCQ traits provided that reference populations have both genotypes and phenotypes for MCQ traits. Limited studies have been done so far to assess the impact of genomic selection (GS) for the improvement of MCQ traits (Lopez et al., 2016). This study aimed to investigate the benefits of GS for the improvement of MCQ traits such as drip loss (DLP) and intramuscular fat (IMF) in pigs.
