PIC, our global porcine genetics business, sells genetically superior sows, boars and semen to farmers, so they can breed pigs with desirable characteristics for pork production. We also provide technical services and advice to farmers, to maximise the performance of our breeding animals in their farms.
PIC owns over 10 elite pure-bred pig lines, housed in strategically located facilities around the world. These herds are bred out into much larger breeding herds in over 500 predominantly sub-contracted ‘multiplication’ farms around the world. PIC boars are also housed in about 400 boar studs globally, where semen is collected for distribution to customers and multiplication herds.
PIC genetics are sold under the PIC brand through direct sales channels and strategic partners.
