PHILIPPINES - Foremost Farms Inc, one of Southeast Asia’s largest hog-raising facilities, has decided to start working with Hypor Maxter genes to improve the quality of finishing pigs. The objective is producing safe and lean quality pork for the Philippine market.

Hypor Maxter is a Piétrain terminal sire that maximises growth in finishing pigs in combination with the right meat and carcase quality characteristics.

Especially within the Piétrain range Hypor Maxter progeny exhibit exceptional growing potential, without compromising on lean yield and loin depth. This boar has undoubtedly the perfect performance and is recognised throughout the industry for the following characteristics:

  • Fastest Growing Piétrain
  • Excellent Feed Conversion
  • High Lean Carcases
  • Strong Progeny
  • Hal Negative

To get the most out of the genetic potential, technical specialists of Hypor will support Foremost Farms staff. Sharing ideas and expertise in combination with the best genetics is key to success. Foremost Farms will benefit from the cost and production efficiencies in using Hypor genetics, as its pigs are bred to increase profitability in the total pork value chain.

Ms Sharon Tan, Chief Operating Officer Foremost Farms: "We decided to import Hypor Maxter boars from France based on the excellent support and production performance that Hypor breeding animals deliver. With Hypor genetics, our customers will have safe and lean quality pork at the lowest costs per kg of produced meat."

Dr Evaristo U. Macalino, Area Manager Asia: "This partnership fits the Hypor strategy: expanding our global breeding network with strong local partners that deliver top quality and support the markets' profitability."
