Genesus production nucleus launched in Spain
Genesus has launched its first genetic production nucleus in Western Europe, Spain.
The unit is a sow facility on an isolated plateau in central Spain. This biosecure operation will produce Genesus purebred gilts for customers in Spain.
Genesus' commitment of delivering top quality, healthy swine genetics to customers has made it necessary to find a European location and facility that would meet not only its biosecurity, and logistics requirements but also new European animal welfare regulations.
Spanish swine producers have been financially pressured, like many in other countries by high feed prices, and financial losses. Genesus believes that the future success in swine production is the adaption of technology that maximises productivity and produces returns. Genesus' Spanish genetic production is our commitment and belief in the future of Spain's swine industry.
