Sires Designed for a Purpose
In our quest for industry-leading genetics of superior quality, we
individually test thousands of boars annually.
We are continually enhancing the strength of our current lines through
development of truly differentiated sire lines, ensuring efficient, high-quality
pork production and the ability to provide the packer with a premium product.
The choice of a sire line is critical to the performance levels achieved by a
pork production system.
Hypor lines offer choices tailored to production challenges.
Progeny from all sire lines excel in growth rate and feed conversion relative to
Carcass traits such as grading lean yield and carcass index are higher than
At TSG Hypor is offering the Shade Oak Duroc, known for their strong
performance in hog finishing operations, and their exceptional meat quality. By
using only pure Durocs, our customers get the full advantage of these important
traits. No watering it down with the use of cross bred, hybrid or synthetic
lines. Shade Oak has an excellent reputation for delivering top quality and real
value to its customers.
Hog performance and carcass quality are the most
consistent and uniform available today. Hypor's Shade Oak Duroc can be purchased
These are all boars that have tested in the top 10% of their
contemporary group in Shade Oak Swine's extensive genetic evaluation program.
They have been tested and selected for average daily gain and feed conversion
from 80 to 120 kg live weight, ensuring their offspring can grow to a heavy
weight quickly and efficiently. Back fat, loin depth and lean yield are
excellent, returning top premiums at many packing plants.
Only the top 5% of all boars tested at Shade Oak make it into
this pool. They are the very best for growth rate and feed conversion, and
possess excellent carcass characteristics. This pool is ideal for the producer
who has the facilities, nutrition and management that will allow their hogs to
meet the superior genetic potential inherent in these elite sires.
Custom Sire Selection
Every Shade Oak Duroc boar at TSG has a complete test
record which allows us to evaluate the genetic value of every sire for each
trait. TSG allows and encourages customers to use this data to select a pool of
boars based on their own specific needs. First we analyze the maternal base that
the semen will be used on and the carcass requirements of the processor that
the hogs are destined for, then we select the sires that will most closely
fit your needs. There are hundreds from which to choose. Our knowledgeable staff is available to
assist in this process. This is the most comprehensive planned mating service
available in the industry today. Many of our customers have seen their returns
increase significantly as a result of using Custom Sire Selection. Contact
