Artificial insemination questions

Gennady Popa, Production Manager PIC International Group (UK) PIC

PIC is the international leader in providing genetically superior pig breeding stock and technical support for maximizing genetic potential to the global pork chain. PIC combines quantitative sciences with leading edge biotechnology to develop non-GMO breeding stock that is focused on meeting the needs of its customers. This approach provides healtheir animals that cost less to produce and provide higher quality products to customers. Operating for over 40 years, PIC's success is attributed to its thorough concentration and significant investment in aspects of genetics, technology and health.

Our mission is to be the leading worldwide supplier of genetic improvement to pork chain customers through innovative and outstanding genetic technology, health and services.

A subsidiary of biotechnology leader Genus plc, PIC's business is the genetic improvement of pigs. In the early 1960s a small group of Oxfordshire pig farmers, concerned that the traditional purebred breeders were not producing the right pig for future markets, invited a group of scientists to devise a way of producing a better hybrid. Following their advice, they bought the best pigs they could find and began to improve them by a process of selection.

PIC is able to produce improved breeding stock by identifying desirable traits that are heritable, setting selection objectives and then running intensive breeding programs. As a result of this process, PIC delivers significant value to its customers in an industry where continual genetic improvement can be a key factor in helping ensure a pig producer remains competitive.

PIC has been delivering this genetic improvement year on year for more than 40 years, during which time it has expanded into over 30 countries on six continents.
