Babcock closed its nucleus herd in the early 1970s, soon realizing improved health and significant production advantages. Shortly thereafter the company made a commitment to bring closed herd technology to pork producers worldwide. The development of reliable fresh semen extenders in the 1990's paved the way for Babcock's current Closed Herd System. Producers will see dramatic benefits from this system, both short and long term. As your herd's health status improves, performance will also improve. The proven advantages of choosing the Babcock Closed Herd System include:
Babcock's genetic lines are developed specifically for closed herd production. As a result, many concerns associated with other closed herds simply do not apply to Babcock's Closed Herd System. Babcock's Closed Herd System provides steady genetic progress, stable health and reliable performance. We've helped pork producers around the world implement this system and we'll help you get started too.
