Quality piglets at birth

Our sow ranks number one on the quality of piglets at birth.

Increasing the number of live births without reducing the individual weight of each piglet at birth is a challenge that Choice is proud to have succeeded. Selection methods are used to control the weight of piglets at birth. This is possible by improving the uterine qualities of the sow. Over the last four years, the number of quality piglets born has increased by +1 and the individual average weight of the piglet remains stable at 1.4kg (3.1 lbs.). The litters are therefore larger while maintaining the quality of the piglet born alive. This is a great achievement, because in most schemes, the two do not go hand in hand.
