JSR Genetics forms German pig breeding company

Pig breeder herd capable of producing 20,000 JSR Genepacker purebread GP per year

UK-based JSR Genetics has gained a new franchise contract in the form of a breeding company in Germany, JSR Hybrid Deutschland GmbH.

The contract, which includes both breeding stock and JSR technical support services, will see the new Ahaus-based company market JSR stock throughout Germany. “Using the JSR Genepacker and JSR Geneconverter lines we have selected GGP and GP gilts and boars to establish a nucleus and multiplier herd capable of generating up to 20,000 JSR Genepacker purebred GP and Genepacker 90 parent gilts a year,” said Paul Anderson, JSR’s international sales director.

According to JSR Hybrid Deutschland, JSR’s scientific approach to genetics was a key factor in the franchise decision, as was the level of technical support JSR could deliver to help producers improve performance and efficiency.
