Partners in Pork’s Janhol Farms Ltd. took first place in the 60/69 Lean category with Hypor genetics on both the dam and sire line. Both runner ups in the category also carried Hypor genes. Fully half of the eighteen winners and runner ups in the six categories were from farms that use Hypor Genetics.

Now in its fourth year, the Olymel Performance Awards highlight the top producers in six categories: Core Weight, High Index, High Health, Core Lean, Food Safety, and Grand Champion. Contenders must ship a minimum of 2500 hogs in the qualifying year to the Olymel plant in Red Deer. Olymel awards points in each category for every load producers ship. The producer who scores the highest in all of the categories based on the weighted point system is named Grand Champion, and awarded $1000.
