The aim of this study was to compare wild boar (chromosomal number 2n=36) to phenotypically similar animals of 2n=37 and 2n=38 chromosomes (crossbreeds) with respect to live weight, carcass yield, meat yield, fat and weight of inner organs. All animals were born and raised on the same farm and slaughtered at 39 weeks. The final live weight of wild boar 2n=36 was significantly lower (47.2kg) as compared to crossbreeds (80.0kg). Animals 2n=36 had more carcass yields (65.5%) than 2n=37 karyotype (64.9%) and 2n=38 (64.4%). Wild boar had the highest yields for the cuts with bones and boneless cuts compared to crossbreeds. Therefore, variations in karyotype are accompanied by differences in some carcass quantitative traits, i.e., 2n=36 grow and fatten slower than crossbreeds 2n=37 and 2n=38.
