Leading-Edge Database Lets Hypor Lead the Way

When you’re a company that’s known for doing things better, faster and first, you need a breeding database that keeps you on the cutting edge. That’s why Hypor’s new system uses the latest technology, and why producers are reaping the rewards.

“The goal in developing the new data base was to prepare for the demands we will face in the years to come,” said Jose María Requejo Puerto, Data and Technology Manager – Swine for Hypor.

If the new system had a theme, it would be “more”: more power and flexibility, allowing Hypor to process more information from more sources and do it faster and more efficiently.

Rather than fearing the future as many companies do, Hypor is embracing it with a program that will put them in the technology cloud while helping clients reach for the stars. 

Better breeding data boosts your bottom line

“This system brings a more agile approach to implementing new traits or calculations which produce new breeding values, and that will bring clients more genetic improvement,” said Ton Dings, Assistant Manager RTC-IT with Hendrix-Genetics. 

As with everything Hypor does, the new system uses the latest technology available in the company’s development framework and is provided by Oracle, one of the world’s leading database providers. Also in keeping with Hypor’s approach, the enhancements are all about benefitting clients.

This database is more flexible and user friendly. It increases our ability to exchange information with customers and provide them with more up to date breeding data. As a result, we can help them improve faster, increase the genetic merit of their population and select better animals from one generation to the next.

Something for everyone

Of course, to be suitable for use by Hypor, any new system must support the company’s commitment to Total System Profitability, and this database delivers. By processing information through a variety of technologies including videos, images, text files or cloud-based communication, the system lets Hypor continually exchange data with a range of industry partners all along the production chain: farms, slaughterhouses, consumers and others.

In the breeding business, if you’re not moving forward, you’re bound to be left behind. With that in mind, Hypor continues to lead the pack with a state of the art system, one that will keep current and future clients on the cutting edge for years to come.
