The DNA GeneticS Program
NOT ALL GENETIC CHARACTERISTICS ARE CREATED EQUAL.
WE FOCUS ON THE ONES THAT MATTER TO YOU.
DNA Genetics is focused on producing a pig that provides unsurpassed performance throughout the entire pork chain. As a producer-owned genetics company, DNA Genetics is designed to be at the forefront of industry advancements, accelerate genetic potential to your herd and improve your bottom line year over year.
Here's how we achieve our industry-leading program:
Data Accuracy & Testing Program
With thousands of nucleus offspring tested weekly, the quality of our data and the size of our testing program allow us to expedite genetic gain to our customers.
Commercial Crossbred Program
The DNA Genetics commercial crossbred program, paired with access to 71,000 DNA Line 241 sows and 2M full program offspring allows us to measure performance in a similar environment to our customers.
Feed Intake Recording
We have individual feed intake recording data on all families within our nucleus system to maintain industry-leading feed efficiency.
Genomic selection allows us to know the true genetic relationships between animals to better select the best animals for our customers.
Higher accuracy = better decisions = greater genetic improvement.
Helix is the database that makes our genetics program possible. Our teams utilize Helix to capture every data point on every animal, which provides the highly accurate information that drives our genetics program.
Future Trait Development
Getting to the next level means always looking for new traits to measure, embracing new technologies and engaging in in-depth research to keep a pulse on future customer and consumer preferences.
We are constantly expanding our multiplication system to provide a quality, high-health DNA Line 241 gilt.
Distribution of Genetic Potential
DNA has built a distribution system that moves superior genetics from the nucleus to the customer faster than all competitors.
