Genesus sending swine breeding stock to South Korea

06-05-2011 | |

Canadian pig breeder Genesus will send several thousands of breeding stock to South Korea in an attempt to help rebuild the country’s pig herd.

South Korea was severely hit by Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) earlier this year and had to cull about one-third of its total pig population.

Genesus, a large producer of High Health Registered Purebred Swine has been chosen by several South Korean swine breeders to replenish their genetics.

Several thousand Genesus Durocs, Yorkshire and Landrace are scheduled to be air freighted in the coming months, all coordinated by Korean agent for the last five years Roh of Dong-a-tech.
