What to Expect on Innovation

THE NETHERLANDS - Hypor explains the importance of Innovation in its balanced approach to pig genetics.

Large data sets related to the molecular function of genes increasingly offer a rich resource of genetic variation. Understanding and quantifying these variations will enable precision breeding.

Hypor's first-to-market Genomic Selection breeding programme enhances accuracy in genetic selection. The company's research will enable countless new traits to be added.

The High Performance Computing cluster enables affordable high throughput genotyping and sequencing in days instead of weeks, accelerating the realisation of precision breeding and bringing it into everyday use.

Hypor says its genetic programme generates improved results. The increasing accuracy of estimated breeding values, backed by new technology and tools, ensure a consistent supply of top quality pig genetics.

It takes the eye of a true expert to select the best breeding stock. Not only based on calculated breeding values, but also conformation and type.

Fulfilling the ever-changing demands of consumers requires predictable meat quality. Water holding capacity, marbling, taste and colour are traits under investigation.

Hypor's diverse team of R&D experts explore the boundaries of genetics and work together with leading academic institutes across the world to explore new horizons.

The company's balanced approach is founded on strengthening four strategic pillars: Value Creation, Collaboration, Innovation and Sustainability. With Hypor’s expertise and resources, the company guarantees that you can 'Expect More'.
