UK - Having been without pigs for the previous five years, Stephen Tuer from Northallerton, restocked his unit with 400 high health Classic 1 gilts from Hermitage Seaborough in the second half of last year.

All gilts were served with Hermitage Seaborough Maxgro terminal line semen and farrowings commenced last month. Results to date have been excellent, with the first batches averaging 14.2 total born and over 13.8 born alive. Farrowing rates have averaged over 93% on all batches to date.

Mr Tuer is delighted with his performance and reports that the gilts are rearing all of the pigs exceptionally well! Congratulations to him and unit manager Louise on this excellent performance.
