Duroc Choice Program

The SGI Duroc Choice program is designed for commercial swine producers that are interested in obtaining Duroc semen to produce terminal pigs for slaughter. The individuals in our Duroc sire battery utilized for this program are selected with the commercial swine production priorities of fast growth rate, feed efficiency and cutability in mind to meet current packer standards. Additionally, the Duroc breed has long been recognized for superior meat quality. In addition to documented performance and carcass traits, the boars are also visually selected for superior structural soundness. Semen from 3 to 5 boars is pooled to insure optimum conception rate and litter size. This program offers commercial producers an opportunity to obtain elite genetics specifically designed for production of terminal market pigs at a very reasonable cost.
