Hermitage Maternal Lines Making Significant Improvement in Addition to Prolificy

Hermitage Maternal line Landrace and Large White have made significant improvements in growth rates (-4 days) and FCE (-.1) over the past 4 years. This is primarily due to selection and individual weighing of over 500 pigs per week and a high generation turn over of 80 % at GGP level. All GGPs retained in the herd are tested at +110kgs.
The average born alive of all litters of all dams of MLI1 Damline AI Boars is now 16.2.
