REASONS TO CHOOSE PORK STORKS
FIRST RATE GENETICS
Pork Storks utilizes industry leading PIC® genetics to improve profitable traits such as rate of gain, feed efficiency and pigs per sow per year.
AGGRESSIVE EBV MANAGEMENT
Estimated Breeding Value is managed on a daily basis and determines which boars are collected and sent to your farm. Pork Storks has a replacement rate of over 90% which means its customers get only the most up to date genetics available.
To maintain their extremely high health status, Pork Storks has set up layer upon layer of biosecurity. From air filtration and air locks to weeks of isolation, nothing is overlooked to ensure the boars (and therefore, your herd) stay disease free.
UNPARALLELED QUALITY ASSURANCE
Every batch of semen is examined for things that could negatively impact your breeding success. Every day for 4 days post collection, the semen is examined for motility. Also, the Swine Vet Center Andrology Lab scrutinizes each batch, looking for low sperm counts, presence of bacteria and potential problems with morphology.
PROTECTION FROM DISEASE
Every collection day, blood samples from the collected boars are PCR tested for PRRS by the University of Minnesota Diagnostic Lab or South Dakota State University. No semen is released until negative results are obtained.
