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