New video: breeding innovation by Topigs Norsvin
Topigs Norsvin invests in breeding innovations. New technology enables us to breed for new traits that were difficult to quantify up until now.
We use cameras to investigate animal behavior. The Pig Atlas based on CT scans provides insight into where the meat is located in the pig, the size of organs and the skeletal structure. Another important innovation is the use of organoid technology. We can study traits such as resistance against diseases and feed efficiency with it.
Combined with big data analyses, these innovations in breeding contribute to additional genetic progress. They make it also possible to breed for new traits.
