"Babcock has focused our research on developing a program that would offer a higher level of profitability to our customers," said James McPeak, President, Babcock Genetics. "We are maximizing genetic improvement by selecting lines that best complement each other."
The new Breed Select Program will improve key traits that are important profit drivers for swine producers. Producers will see a substantial improvement in number born while maintaining high individual piglet birth weights. Babcock currently supplies its customers with a robust, disease resistant animal that grows fast and is an efficient feed converter.
