The intensive development of genetic aspects in animal husbandry is a priority task for breeders now. New traits of the breeding process, including genetic assessments, are important for increasing the product quality and organism directional resistance for breeding populations. The aim of this work was to study the genetically based relationship between biochemical parameters and economically useful traits of hybrid pig blood using mathematical methods applied in modern animal husbandry. The studies were carried out on boars (n=18) obtained by three-breed crossing (Large WhitexLandracexDuroc) and grown at Shauer automatic feeding stations (Cooper, France) at Russian Hybrid Breeding Center. The fattening, meat (BW0, BW1, FG, ADG, P2), physical-chemical (moisture, protein, fat, ash, pH1, pH24) and biochemical (total protein, albumins, globulins, urea, creatinine, glucose, bilirubin, triglycerides, phospholipids, cholesterol, ALT, AST, ALP, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, chlorides) indicators were obtained. Automatic biochemical analyzer ChemWell (Awareness Technology, USA) and reagents from Analyticon Biotechnologies (Germany) and Spinreact (Spain) are used for determining biochemical indicators. The calculations and visualization of genetic and phenotypic correlations were carried out in R-studio. The obtained results will make it possible to increase the level of breeding research in the breeding population of animals that are used to obtain commercial hybrids.
