First piggery feed
In the beginning of 2006 piggery were first stall-fed, аnd in 2007 breeding stock were first brought in: about 400 replacement gilts (F1) and 10 hogs of Landrace and Yorkshire breed.
Now the reproductive herd basis consists of replacement gilts (F1), resulted from crossbreeding of the female parent breeds (Landrace and Yorkshire) with highly reproductive properties: prolificacy, deep-milking quality, uniformity and progeny-viability. Duroc was used as the male parent breed, characterized by high growth energy, low feed conversion and sufficient stamina. Salable hybrids, for slaughtering, yield high meat output, frank meat-type forms and low fat content pigs.
