Genetic Improvement

A portfolio of global lines deployed to meet local market needs


PIC’s genetic improvement program utilizes the variation available in 17 different line populations worldwide.  The performance of these lines, and the products derived from them, is measured in many different environments around the world, with the information collected in Genus’s proprietary genetic database, PICTraq™.


These 17 lines provide the foundation from which PIC is able to satisfy the local market requirements of pig producers and pork consumers.  In addition, custom improvement programs have been developed for a number of our customers who seek further differentiation of their branded pork.  Attention continues to be focused on genetic dissemination and the reduction of genetic lag which allows our customers to realize genetic value faster than ever before in their operations.
