Pig production systems provide multiple benefits to humans. However, the global increase in meat consumption has profound consequences for our earth. This perspective describes two alternative scenarios for improving the sustainability of future pig production systems. The first scenario is a high input–high output system based on sustainable intensification, maximizing animal protein production efficiency on a limited land surface at the same time as minimizing environmental impacts. The second scenario is a reduced input–reduced output system based on selecting animals that are more robust to climate change and are better adapted to transform low quality feed (local feeds, feedstuff co‐products, food waste) into meat. However, in contrast to the first scenario, the latter scenario results in reduced predicted yields, reduced production efficiency and possibly increased costs to the consumer. National evaluation of the availability of local feed and feedstuff co‐product alternatives, determination of limits to feed sourced from international markets, available land for crop and livestock production, desired production levels, and a willingness to politically enforce policies through subsidies and/or penalties are some of the considerations to combine these two scenarios. Given future novel sustainable alternatives to livestock animal protein, it may become reasonable to move towards an added general premium price on ‘protein from livestock animals’ to the benefit of promoting higher incomes to farmers at the same time as covering the extra costs of, politically enforced, welfare of livestock animals in sustainable production systems.

The use of diets with increased fibre content from alternative feedstuffs less digestible for pigs is a solution considered to limit the impact of increased feed costs on pig production. This study aimed at determining the impact of an alternative diet on genetic parameters for growth, feed efficiency, carcass composition and meat quality traits. A total of 783 Large White pigs were fed a high-fibre (HF) diet and 880 of their sibs were fed a conventional (CO) cereal-based diet. Individual daily feed intake, average daily gain, feed conversion ratio and residual feed intake were recorded as well as lean meat percentage (LMP), carcass yield (CY) and meat quality traits. Pigs fed the CO diet had better performances for growth and feed efficiency than pigs fed the HF diet. They also had lower LMP and higher CY. In addition, pigs fed the CO diet had lower loin percentage and ham percentage and higher backfat percentage. No differences were observed in meat quality traits between diets, except for a* and b* values. For all traits, the genetic variances and heritability were not different between diets. Genetic correlations for traits between diets ranged between 0.80 ± 0.13 and 0.99 ± not estimable, and none were significantly different from 0.99, except for LMP. Thus, traits in both diets were considered as mainly affected by similar sets of genes in the two diets. A genetic correlation lower than 0.80 would justify redesigning the breeding scheme; however, some genetic correlations did not differ significantly from 0.80 either. Therefore, larger populations are needed for a more definitive answer regarding the design of the breeding scheme. To further evaluate selection strategies, a production index was computed within diets for the 29 sires with estimated breeding value reliability higher than 0.35. The rank correlation between indices estimated in the CO and in the HF diet was 0.72. Altogether, we concluded that limited interaction between feed and genetics could be evidenced, and based on these results there is no need to change pig selection schemes to adapt to the future increased use of alternative feedstuffs in production farms.

Les mesures de l’ingéré sont les clés d’une sélection précise de l’efficacité alimentaire. Elles sont cependant coûteuses. De plus, ces performances dépendent de nombreuses composantes, telles que le niveau de production, l’activité et le comportement des animaux, leur aptitude à répondre à des stress, et leur capacité à digérer l’aliment. L’importance relative de ces composantes dépend du système de production, en particulier de la séquence alimentaire et des conditions de logement des animaux. Cette communication propose de résumer les résultats obtenus dans le projet Feed-a-Gene sur l’évaluation de nouvelles mesures pour la sélection de l’efficacité alimentaire, en se concentrant sur les mesures les moins coûteuses qui peuvent contribuer à une plus grande durabilité de la production. Des mesures liées à l’activité des porcs, dont le comportement alimentaire, des indicateurs de bien-être (comptage des lésions et qualification des interactions entre animaux) et de stress, et des mesures d’efficacité digestive ont été évaluées. L’impact de l’effet génétique des autres individus de la loge (effets génétiques indirects) sur les performances individuelles a aussi été testé comme levier pour obtenir des valeurs génétiques plus précises. Les mesures les plus prometteuses (comportement alimentaire, interactions entre porcs, efficacité digestive, effets génétiques indirects) avaient des héritabilités comprises entre 0,18 et 0,70. Les gains de progrès génétique possibles par l’utilisation de telles mesures dans les schémas de sélection ont été évalués analytiquement pour identifier les meilleurs enregistrements à déployer en ferme.

Can new measures improve selection for feed efficiency in pigs?

Measuring feed intake is a key for accurate selection of feed efficiency. However, recording feed efficiency is expensive and depends on multiple components, including production level, activity, behaviour, responses to stress and digestion. The relative importance of these components is partly driven by the production system, especially diet and housing. This paper summarizes results obtained in the Feed-a-Gene project for new measures for feed efficiency in pigs, with a focus on how they can be used for sustainable breeding schemes. Measures related to pig activity (including feeding behaviour), measures to quantify welfare (injuries and interindividual interactions) and stress level, and measures of individual digestibility were evaluated. The genetic impact of other animals in the pen (indirect genetic effects, IGE) on individual performance was also considered as a potential approach to better estimate individual breeding values. Some of the most promising measures (feeding activity, pig interactions, digestibility, IGE) had moderate to high heritabilities (from 0.18-0.70). Gains in genetic progress achievable when including these measures in breeding schemes were evaluated analytically to identify the best procedures to implement on-farm.

L’utilisation de régimes avec des teneurs accrues en fibres provenant d’aliments alternatifs, moins digestibles pour les porcs, est une solution utilisée pour limiter l’impact du coût de l’aliment en production porcine. L’étude a pour objectif de déterminer l’impact d’une teneur accrue en fibres (F) dans l’aliment sur la digestibilité chez le porc en croissance et d’estimer les paramètres génétiques de celle-ci. Un total de 654 porcs Large White a été nourri avec un régime conventionnel (CO) et 588 de leurs pleins-frères avec un régime F. Pour chaque porc, les coefficients d’utilisation digestive (CUD) de l’énergie, de la matière organique et de l’azote ont été prédits à partir d’échantillons de fèces analysés par spectrométrie dans le proche infrarouge. La consommation moyenne journalière (CMJ) et résiduelle (CMJR), le gain moyen quotidien (GMQ), l’indice de consommation (IC), le taux de muscle des pièces (TMP), le rendement en carcasse (RDT) et des caractères de qualité de la viande (CQV) ont été enregistrés sur chaque animal. Les trois CUD étaient significativement plus faibles pour les porcs nourris avec le régime F que les porcs nourris avec le régime CO (-6 à -7 %). Les trois CUD étaient modérément à fortement héritables (de 0,38±0,12 à 0,40±0,12 et de 0,54±0,15 à 0,56±0,15, respectivement, dans les régimes CO et F). Les trois CUD étaient favorablement corrélés à l’IC, la CMJ et la CMJR, mais défavorablement corrélés avec le GMQ et les CQV. Pour conclure, la digestibilité serait un caractère intéressant à ajouter dans les schémas de sélection afin d’affiner les décisions de sélection concernant l’efficacité alimentaire. Cependant, les corrélations génétiques défavorables avec le GMQ et les CQV notamment devront être prises en compte.

Is digestive efficiency a useful trait for improving pig feed efficiency?

Feeding diets with increased dietary fibre content from alternative by-products, which are less digestible for pigs, is a solution used to decrease the impact of increased feed costs on pig production. This study aimed to determine the impact of an alternative diet with increased fibre content (F) on pig digestibility and to estimate genetic parameters of digestibility. A total of 654 Large White pigs were fed a conventional diet (CO), and 588 of their full-sibs were fed a F diet. For each pig, digestibility coefficients (DC) of energy, organic matter, and nitrogen were predicted from faeces samples analysed with near infrared spectrometry. Individual daily feed intake (DFI), residual feed intake (RFI), average daily gain (ADG), feed conversion ratio (FCR), lean meat percentage (LMP), carcass yield (CY) and meat quality traits (MQT) were recorded for each pig. The three DC were significantly lower for pigs fed the F diet than pigs fed the CO diet (-6 to -7%). The three DC were moderately to highly heritable (from 0.38±0.12 to 0.40±0.12 and from 0.54±0.15 to 0.56±0.15 for the CO and the F diet, respectively). The three DC were favourably correlated with FCR, DFI and RFI, but unfavourably with ADG and MQT. To conclude, digestibility could be a useful trait to include in breeding schemes to improve selection decisions about feed efficiency. However, it would have to be selected along with ADG and MQT to avoid adverse genetic trends on the latter traits.
