Outstanding Weaned Piglet Results for Xuanwei Farm of Shennong

27 July 2015

CHINA - PIC China congratulates the Yunnan Shennong Agricultural Industry Group in setting a new milestone in China by attaining 30 pigs weaned per sow per year.

In the second quarter of 2015, the 6,150-sow Xuanwei Farm demonstrated outstanding results: over 90 per cent average farrowing rate; 14.1 average total born, 13.1 average liveborn and 12.30 pigs weaned per litter respectively.

At 2.46 average litters per mated female per year this computes to 30.26 pigs weaned per sow per year.

Xuanwei Farm’s performance has compared favourably with advanced market standards since the farm was stocked with PIC Genetics in 2013 and had the first litters of PIC progeny born in August 2014.
