In the performance test boars achieved average daily gain – 561 g, average backfat thickness – 11.4 mm and lean meat content – 59.1%. The highest average daily gain was observed after line Sudet (576 g), the lowest backfat thickness was measured after line Viskont (10.2 mm) and the highest lean meat content was observed after lines Viskont and Pirát (60.1%) in boars. Gilts achieved average daily gain – 518 g, average backfat thickness – 11.0 mm and lean meat content – 58.5%. The highest growth achieved gilts after line Akoga (527 g). The lowest backfat thickness (10.1 mm) and the highest lean meat content (59.6%) were measured after line Viskont.
