Hypor first piglets born in China
The Shandong Hypor Liuhe Breeding Farm team has
announced their first farrowing which occurred right on schedule on April 10,
The eagerly aniticipated Large White litter numbered 17 born, with 15 born
alive, exceeding expectations for a gilt litter.
Farm manager Zhang Wenbo and Wang Xingjun, Farrowing and Nursery Manager in
charge of the farrowing and nursery units are impressed with the genetic
performance for litter size and viability.
These piglets are the foundation for the Hypor-Liuhe Group joint venture in
the growing pork production industry in China.
The Shandong Hypor Liuhe Breeding Farm began operations in October 2007, when
the farm was populated with 820 purebred Large White, Landrace and Duroc gilts
and boars, shipped from Hypor's high-health nucleus farms in Saskatchewan,
The production start-up had been a huge success with breeding conception
rates exceeding expectations. Now as the farrowing rooms start to fill up, the
farm moves into full production.
