This paper discusses several possible routes for taking advantage of prolific Chinese breeds in various market conditions in the light of the results obtained in France on Meishan and Jiaxing breeds. Possible routes include the use of pure Chinese breeds, the creation of composite lines, the manipulation of the environment and of the genome.
