F1 Hybrid Sow
DNA L241 F1 Hyperprolific, docile, and robust sow. Uniform and quality litters
This is the second best-selling sow in America and continues to grow its share of the market. The use of purebred Yorkshire and Landrace to produce this F1 hybrid offers the benefit of 100 % heterosis. Selection for finishing traits, such as daily gain, feed efficiency, and carcass composition produces pigs that require less kg of feed per carcass weight gain. Their pigs remain uniform throughout their growth from birth to slaughter. This provides a marketing advantage and more efficient use of facilities.
The main traits are:
> Uniform, high-quality weaned piglets
> Uniform progeny from birth to slaughter, with excellent FCR and ADG
> Less kg of feed to produce quality weaned pigs
