The opinion of a farmer

With NUCLEUS, we have developed innovative selection processes (i.e. homogeneity of piglet’s birth weight…). We, the breeders, have changed our way of working (sow autonomy) according to the request from NUCLEUS. Results and progress are impressive. Multiplication farmers are very satisfi ed with GP sows they receive.
