JSR Genetics launches the JSR 9T at Pig Fair 2016

The JSR Genetics team were at the British Pig & Poultry Fair at Stoneleigh Park on 10 & 11 May, along with colleagues from Topigs Norsvin. The fair was the ideal opportunity to celebrate 1 year since the announcement of the genetic partnership agreement with Topigs Norsvin, and to launch the new JSR 9T - the first new F1 parent sow developed from the partnership.

JSR Genetics launches the JSR 9T at Pig Fair 2016

Incorporating the Large White (Z) line from Topigs Norsvin, this new sow will enable UK producers to rear more cost-effective finishers over the sow's lifetime. The JSR 9T incorporates new technologies such as genomic selection, as well as emphasis on novel selection traits and a greater emphasis on the contribution to the slaughter pig. Whilst many sows give large litters, this parent sows rears more progeny with a lower cost of production.
