Why Purebreds?

Registered Duroc, Hampshire, Landrace and Yorkshire pigs provide producers the opportunity to use PROVEN and PROGRESSIVE genetics backed by PERFORMANCE .

PROVEN : The National Swine Registry’s performance record database has more than 2 million records that have been compiled to measure numerous economically-relevant traits that affect your bottom line. Using state of the art technology, individual EPDs and indexes are updated each evening. These predictions of genetic merit, coupled with a DNA-verified pedigree, helps our producers to continuously find animals that will improve their seedstock and make their operations more profitable. 

PROGRESSIVE :  With the largest global purebred genetic evaluation system in the world and access to leading PhD geneticists from U.S. universities, NSR helps its members move forward. With customized selection, index development for product differentiation, coupled with production and management technical service from NSR and its commercially-oriented members, producers progress toward greater profits.

PERFORMANCE : NSR purebred hogs perform. Their performance is backed by decades of performance testing and on-farm implementation of purebred genetics. NSR verifies each performance pedigree and validates each performance testing program, which means performance goes past the paper and into production.
