Official statistics referring to the Romanian swine industry performances in 2008 are still far from the average production figures in the main European countries. This seems to be rather a paradox considering the large amount on investments made by most of the farms both in technology and genetic. The present paper is focusing on some production performance of PIC genotypes during 2008, in several large scale commercial farms. Comparisons are made either between genotypes in the same farm or as difference to the average Romanian performances reported in 2008. In order to keep maximum objectivity each trait considered was assessed by attaching to it an estimated economical value.
Key words: pig genotypes, PIC, production results
