Our Piétrian sire line
The Hypor Maxter, one of the top Piétrain sire lines in the world, delivers high quality piglets, more full value finishers, and results in uniform carcass and pork quality, well suited for many markets. This sire line produces progeny with heavy, uniform birth weights that easily thrive to weaning.
The winning combination of fast growth, efficiency, and exceptional leanness is accompanied by more full value finishers. At processing, carcasses have a high lean meat percentage, lower drip loss and can easily fit within many grids around the globe. Hendrix Genetics is setting the standard in sustainable swine breeding by providing a Piétrain sire line who produces high quality, uniform, and efficient progeny that always hit the grid.
Benefits of the Hypor Maxter
High quality piglets
The Hypor Maxter produces uniform piglets with an average birth weight of 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs) and 94% of piglets more than 1 kg (2.2 lbs). This has a direct effect on the productivity of your sow herd.
Fast-growing & uniform finishers
It is proven that the Hypor Maxter produces fast-growing and uniform finishers. It is one of the fastest growing Piétrains in the world, which reduces the number of growth days in the barn.
More quality meat
Carcasses from Hypor Maxter finishers easily fit many grids. They are consistently in the sweet spot of the grid for lean meat percentage, fat depth, muscle depth, and carcass weight measurements.
Our standards for sustainable swine breeding
Piglet birth weight
Piglet birth weight is proven to influence lifetime performance, with heavier birth weight piglets being more likely to survive and reach market in fewer days.
Full value finishers
A Full Value Finisher (FVF) is any pig placed that reaches or survives to the market and/or slaughterhouse requirements. Our goal means 2% nursery mortality and 3% grow-finish mortality.
Carcasses hitting the grid
"Hitting the Grid” is dependent on the market and slaughterhouse, but of the full value finishers that reach the market, we strive for 98% of these to hit the grid.
