Hypor Kanto

Our meat quality Duroc sire line

The Hypor Kanto is our Duroc sire line with the most premium pork quality. Finishers sent to the processing plant have uniform carcass characteristics and pork quality that meets and exceeds premium market requirements. In the finishing barn, Hypor Kanto finishers have outstanding growth and are added value finishers for niche and export markets. This all stems from high quality piglets at birth with heavy birth weights and vital piglets at weaning. Hendrix Genetics is setting the standard in sustainable swine breeding by providing a Duroc sire line that produces high quality, uniform progeny with exceptional meat quality characteristics.
