The aim of the experiment in test station was to evaluate productive performance with respect to feeding-technologies through the test for LWs × (LW×L) genotype in pigs. The productive performance as growth capacity, feeding intake and quantitative traits of slaughter value was examined for 144 hybrid pigs divided in two identical groups, where the 1st group was fed ad-libitum and the 2nd one semi-ad-libitum. On the base of profit formula, the ad-libitum system of feeding in pigs is better in all economic features.Keywords:
