Uniformity is crucial for success throughout all phases of pork production. It leads to problem-free undisturbed production from rearing gilts to processing. Labour, animal welfare, efficiency and quality are all influenced by uniformity. Therefore traits that contribute to uniformity continue to grow in importance.
Life in pork production is far easier when producers have uniform litters and batches of pigs. A uniform and robust batch of pigs is beneficial in all phases of the production chain. As finding sufficient qualified labour is one of the major challenges the pig industry faces today, uniformity is growing in importance. A uniform group increases labour efficiency as fewer divergent animals disrupt the workflow.
