For the last six years Genesus has been identifying the World Mega Producer companies (operations with 100,000 sows or more). Through this time the global swine industry has gone under immense change and cycles.

In North America, losses for producers for the better part of almost two years now with little to no profitability gains over that time has resulted in a smaller sow herd today and still shrinking. For Europe, have seen a sow herd reduction in size dramatically through financial losses and has seen fairly high prices for over a year. For China, it has been a brutal stretch of losses and now prices are rising much higher than where they once were entering the profitability area.

With such dramatic financial losses for the North American and Chinese industry over the last year resulting in smaller sow herds it should create an opportunity for profitability over the next months - they need it.

This year's World Mega Producer list compromises 49 companies in 10 different countries and three other World Mega Management Companies. Three new entries have joined this year's list including the first ever entries of companies from Mexico and Vietnam. With over 16 million sows being reported on this year’s list, these companies represent roughly 20% of all sow production in the entire world.

Genesus has supplied swine genetics to nearly half of all the companies on this year's World Mega Producer list.
