Total Swine Genetics is proud to supply maternal lines from the following companies:

DNA genetics

Best People. Best Pig. Best Genetic Option.


DNA Genetics provides superior maternal and terminal lines that thrive in North America's commercial production setting and marketplace.

  • Most widely used terminal boar line in North America' the Line 600 Duroc boar.
  • Largest purebred Duroc nucleus herd in the world, resulting in more than 16,000 Duroc boars being individually performance tested every year.
  • Gene transfer centers stocked with boars directly from nucleus farms, not boar multipliers. Direct from nucleus means a decrease in genetic lag by 1.5 generations.
  • Elite terminal boar line option.
  • Committed to having the lowest generation interval in the industry, which means faster genetic progress. Then passing the genetic improvements on to producers as quickly as possible. This is accomplished through rigorous, continuous improvement.
  • Post-Cervical Artificial Insemination (PCAI) is available which offers many benefits such as: improved safety, labor and time savings, fewer sperm cells for lower cost of goods, and higher-indexing boars to be spread across more sows. On-farm training is available for producers who implement PCAI.

The balance between the sow’s prolificacy and reproductive efficiency results is a commercial sow that produces and weans a high number of uniform piglets per year, without compromising her ability to produce the next litter. The Hypor Libra* will excel in any housing system because of selection for strong feet and legs and calm temperament in our breeding program. Hypor is setting the standard in sustainable swine breeding by providing a sow with efficient lifetime productivity of quality offspring.

BioHypor

BioHypor is an advanced self-replacement system that is designed for customers who want to have a high level of biosecurity and achieve constant genetic progress through direct links to the Hypor database and Hypor-controlled boar studs. This is done through a one-time delivery of purebred gilts (Large White or Landrace) to establish a mini-nucleus within a farm. These purebreds will maintain the purebred population and generate the F1 (crossbred) sow for commercial production.

 

EasyHypor

EasyHypor is a less intensive form of BioHypor, where there is no direct link to the Hypor database. There is still a one-time delivery of purebred gilts to maintain the purebred and create the F1 (crossbred) populations, but information from the database is not used to make mating decisions. You can still expect a high level of biosecurity and steady genetic progress with this system.
