Quality piglets at birth

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...

More, heavier and more homogeneous at weaning

More, heavier and more homogeneous at weaning

More than 220 lbs/100 kg litter weight at weaning. The selection of prolificacy only makes sense if it is coupled with selection of milking ability. It is necessary to naturally farrow more and more litters. For producers, the goal is to have heavy and piglets equal...

How can we improve the profitability of the farm and respect the fundamentals of animal biology and welfare?To answer this question, one of the parameters is to select sows with high maternal potential. The natural maternal instincts and milking capacities of CG36 are...

Robust, self-contained sows

Robust, self-contained sows

Robust and calm, CG36 sows also show more self-sufficiency on a daily basis.How? By expressing their maternal nature: rapid farrowing, low incidence of difficult farrowings, production of colostrum for better immunity of piglets, rapid up ramp of milk, and the ability...

Longevity and durability

Longevity and durability

The lowest sow mortality in the industry. Exceptional feet and leg quality and an udder with invigorating milk production, guarantee the longest on-farm career in the industry, with 6 litters on average/cull sow. Particularly robust, CG36 sows have the lowest sow...
