Piglet birth weight: 1.5 kg/3.3 lbs
We currently achieve our standard for sustainable piglet birth weight, with piglets born at an average of 1.5 kg/3.3 lbs. Piglet birth weight is proven to influence lifetime performance, with heavier birth weight piglets more likely to survive and reach market in fewer days.
We strive to have no piglets <1 kg/2.2 lbs at birth and currently achieve 90-96% piglets above 1 kg depending on the line used. We continually measure individual piglet birth weights on nucleus and commercial farms to maintain this standard and improve piglet quality.
