Genetics Suppliers - Terminal
Genetics Canada terminal Duroc lines are durable and vigorous. They
produce high indexing market hogs that are lean, fast growing and feed
efficient. The Duroc provides maximum hybrid vigour when crossed with F1
York- Landrace gilts, delivering a positive effect on growth rate,
viability and disease resistance. Progeny of our Duroc sires provide:
- Very fast growth
- Excellent feed conversion
- High lean yields
- Best carcass traits
- Excellent marbling
- Most flavourful pork
Alliance Genetics Canada’s Duroc product line up includes:

Best People. Best Pig. Best Genetic Option.
DNA Genetics provides superior maternal and terminal lines that thrive in North
America’s commercial production setting and marketplace.
- Most widely used terminal boar line in North America – the Line 600
- Largest purebred Duroc nucleus herd in the world, resulting in more than
16,000 Duroc boars being individually performance tested every year.
- Gene transfer centers stocked with boars directly from nucleus farms,
not boar multipliers. Direct from nucleus means a decrease in genetic lag by
- Elite terminal boar line option
- Committed to having the lowest generation interval in the industry,
which means faster genetic progress. Then passing the genetic improvements
on to producers as quickly as possible. This is accomplished through
rigorous, continuous improvement.
- Post-Cervical Artificial Insemination (PCAI) is available which offers
many benefits such as: improved safety, labor and time savings, fewer sperm
cells for lower cost of goods, and higher-indexing boars to be spread across
more sows. On-farm training is available for producers who implement PCAI.

Sires Designed for a Purpose
In our quest for industry-leading genetics of superior quality, we
individually test thousands of boars annually.
We are continually enhancing the strength of our current lines through
development of truly differentiated sire lines, ensuring efficient, high-quality
pork production and the ability to provide the packer with a premium product.
The choice of a sire line is critical to the performance levels achieved by a
pork production system.
Hypor lines offer choices tailored to production challenges.
Progeny from all sire lines excel in growth rate and feed conversion relative to
Carcass traits such as grading lean yield and carcass index are higher than
At TSG Hypor is offering the Shade Oak Duroc, known for their strong
performance in hog finishing operations, and their exceptional meat quality. By
using only pure Durocs, our customers get the full advantage of these important
traits. No watering it down with the use of cross bred, hybrid or synthetic
lines. Shade Oak has an excellent reputation for delivering top quality and real
value to its customers.
Hog performance and carcass quality are the most
consistent and uniform available today. Hypor’s Shade Oak Duroc can be purchased
These are all boars that have tested in the top 10% of their
contemporary group in Shade Oak Swine’s extensive genetic evaluation program.
They have been tested and selected for average daily gain and feed conversion
from 80 to 120 kg live weight, ensuring their offspring can grow to a heavy
weight quickly and efficiently. Back fat, loin depth and lean yield are
excellent, returning top premiums at many packing plants.
Only the top 5% of all boars tested at Shade Oak make it into
this pool. They are the very best for growth rate and feed conversion, and
possess excellent carcass characteristics. This pool is ideal for the producer
who has the facilities, nutrition and management that will allow their hogs to
meet the superior genetic potential inherent in these elite sires.
Custom Sire Selection
Every Shade Oak Duroc boar at TSG has a complete test
record which allows us to evaluate the genetic value of every sire for each
trait. TSG allows and encourages customers to use this data to select a pool of
boars based on their own specific needs. First we analyze the maternal base that
the semen will be used on and the carcass requirements of the processor that
the hogs are destined for, then we select the sires that will most closely
fit your needs. There are hundreds from which to choose. Our knowledgeable staff is available to
assist in this process. This is the most comprehensive planned mating service
available in the industry today. Many of our customers have seen their returns
increase significantly as a result of using Custom Sire Selection. Contact

superior growth and feed efficiency from a user-friendly animal.
Our starting point in breeding is the animal. The Topigs Norsvin
pig must remain robust and easy to handle; it must maintain balance
while the improvement of a trait must not lead to problems in the
pig’s other traits. An example of balanced breeding is our focus on
piglet vitality. In breeding vital piglets, piglet mortality has not
increased even though the number of live-born piglets per litter has
increased strongly over the past few years.
