Carcass weights keep on increasing. Feed is the most important component in the cost of producing a pig. Therefore, feed efficiency all the way up to heavier market weights will remain the highest priority in the breeding goal of TN Tempo.
Robustness is another top priority breeding goal trait, due to increasing challenges that our customers experience with disease and animal welfare legislation.
Robustness traits in the breeding goal of TN Tempo include survival from birth to market, congenital defects, leg quality, and natural PRRS resistance.
Natural PRRS resistance is based on the WUR SNP genotype. Results of economic analyses indicate that producers can save between $3.09 – $11.10 per head for a pig with the favorable WUR genotype.
