The Internal Gilt Replacement Program is for producers who would like to produce their own gilts. It is a structured plan to allow the producer to maintain up to date, genetically superior nucleus/multiplication/commercial gilts.
It involves selection of purebred animals for nucleus and multiplication. OSI provides the planned matings to produce the replacement gilts. All animals are tested and selected through the CCSI’s national evaluation program for swine. The national comparisons are done involving the largest group of nucleus based animals in Canada - and possibly the world.
OSI provides assistance with training and selection of replacement animals. All animals that are ultrasound tested for backfat and muscle depths are printed out and given EBV’s to use as a selection tool.
OSI has the expertise to help all producers become successful with Internal Gilt Replacements.
