Unique import in Chile: Topigs Norsvin boars from Norway
Topigs Norsvin distributor Alimundo recently received breeding boars from Norway. This is a unique transport because it is the first time that genetics from Norway are entering the Chilean market. The boars, Norsvin Landrace and Norsvin Duroc, are the third import of Topigs Norsvin genetics to Chile in the second half of 2015. Earlier imports were Z-line breeding sows and Tempo and Talent boars from Canada.
The combination of Norsvin Landrace and Z-line gives highly productive and efficient sows that when inseminated with the Norsvin Duroc produce finishers with high gain, low feed conversion and high, top-quality carcass yield. This unique combination is new for the Chilean market. â€˜â€™Chilean producers can directly benefit from top genetics from our nucleus farms in Canada and Norway,” says Peter van Kemenade, Director North and South America.
Alimundo is the distributor of Topigs Norsvin genetics in Chile, Bolivia and Peru. The three imports are the highlight of the tenth anniversary of the collaboration between Topigs Norsvin and Alimundo. With high quality genetics and a local professional team with considerable expertise, Alimundo is serving a growing number of future-oriented pig producers in these South American countries.
