TN70 is produced by crossing Norsvin Landrace with Z-line (=Large White) or A-line (Large White)

“This is the sow that everybody will want”

Toon Janssen, the first Dutch farmer to test TN70

Breeding Goal

Finisher efficiency 29%

  • CT & ultrasound scanning for carcass value
  • Individual weight & feed intake registration
  • Breeding for strong and vital pigs
  • Meat and fat quality assessment for long term quality

Carcass value 8%

Meat quality 3%

Litter size 19%

  • Every extra piglet born should be weaned and make it to the slaughter plant
  • For every extra piglet there should be a teat available
  • The sows should be able to nurse their piglets
  • Birth weights should not go down

Robustness 25%

  • CT scanning for structure
  • Stayability in group housing and conventional housing
  • Structural robustness phenotypes
  • Extensive exterior scoring for optimal functionality

Easy in use 18%

  • Male & female reproduction
  • Balanced litter size
  • Enough functional teats up to high parities
  • Uniform and robust piglets – from birth until weaning

Good mother

TN70

Bred to wean every extra pig on her own

  • Optimizing Male & Female Reproduction
  • Balanced litter size – in different farrowing conditions
  • Sufficient functional teats to high parities
  • Uniform and robust piglets – from pre-birth to weaning

700.000 piglets weighed individually every year

Our ambition

  • Every extra piglet born should be weaned and make it to the slaughter plant
  • For every extra piglet there should be a teat available
  • The sows should be able to nurse their piglets
  • Birth weights should not go down

TN70

Bred to stay & perform

TN70

Fully using DNA-information for selection

The use of DNA information makes breeding more accurate.
The result is up to 40% faster genetic progress. It also makes breeding for specific characteristics easier, for example reproduction, disease resistance and meat quality.

For TN70, the combined genetic progress in reproduction, production and carcass quality has increased the margin per finisher with €4.5 during the last 5 years.

  • More pigs weaned by improving born alive (+0.2), more teats (+0.5) and lower mortality (-2%)
  • Lower production costs by improving growth rate (+55 g/d) and lowering feed conversion (-0.15)
  • Higher carcass value by reducing back fat (-0.8 mm) and increasing loin depth (+1.2 mm)
Less labour

TN70

Problem-free farrowing

  • Less labour
  • More joy of labour
  • Easy to manage

We see even lower dead born. TN70 farrows really easy.

Feed

Know how to feed your TN70

Topigs Norsvin adopts a hands-on approach by developing feed manuals and guidelines and then assisting customers and their feed providers in implementing these on the farm. The belief is that we know what our animals need, and we want to share this with all of our customers and their feed providers. The TN70 gilt and sow is a unique female and needs to be fed and reared according to the Topigs Norsvin recommendations to be able to fully benefit from her genetic potential.

Every piglet deserves a good mother!
