MOFA Global is proud to introduce its field performance testing program, Certified Pigs on the Ground™ to address the challenges, demands and needs of todays modern boar studs. It is the highest level of quality control for boar semen extenders with the ultimate reduction of production related risks as never before.
This seal of quality is applied only to extender lots manufactured in the USA by MOFA Global which are field performance tested in addition to the most advanced and rigorous analytical and biological quality control testing to ensure batch to batch consistency in Farrowing Rates and Total Pigs Born before being released for commercial use.
“Field testing on US commercial sow farms from conception to parturition goes above and beyond the standard extender QC. This product qualification helps to ensure consistent performance, litter after litter. Pigs on the Ground certified just makes sense when it comes to extender selection.” said Phil Burke, VP Global Key Accounts at MOFA Global.
Field testing is performed in partnership with independent boar studs, veterinary clinics and pork production systems. All test and control semen is produced from split ejaculates to yield statistically significant field data.
The Pigs on the Ground field testing is available for select MOFA Global long term semen extenders.
