As the primary bases of the genetic improvement program Hypor has nucleus farms in France, Canada and Spain. In these farms we breed our pure lines. We measure and record a lot of information from our animals. The pedigree and the traits of each animal give us important information, such as weight, feed conversion, muscle depth and back fat.
The data that we have collected over the years makes it possible to estimate the genetic potential of a specific animal (breeding value). With these breeding values, combined with the conformation scores of individual animals, we can select the animals to be used as parents of the next generation. Our goal is to increase the performance and indeed the average breeding value of the next generation.
Our database, software and handhelds help us to get faster accurate information.
