Genus plc Announces New Strategic Agreement with River Stone Farm (Shandong) Co., Ltd

Genus plc announced a new strategic agreement with River Stone Farm (Shandong) Co. Ltd. to become the Group's first commercial multiplier in China. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Genus's porcine genetics division, Genus PIC, will exclusively stock and sustain Riverstone's new pig production project in China, with a total anticipated herd size of 24,000 sows. Riverstone's project comprises four breeding farms based in Shandong, eastern China, capable of producing in total more than 600,000 pigs for market every year. The first module of 6,200 pigs will be ready for stocking in the first quarter of 2015 and will produce grandparent and parent gilts for both Genus and Riverstone as well as supplying the market with prime slaughter pigs. As a result of the agreement, Genus will be able to access more than 10,000 grandparent gilts a year for sale to large-scale integrated producers. The project also features a dedicated artificial insemination stud to house sire line boars for commercial pig production and dam line males for great-grandparent and grandparent matings. The genetic profile of the herd will be monitored and managed using Genus PIC's proprietary software and database to maximise the effectiveness of the genetic improvement programme. The database is the larger of its kind with tens of millions of pedigree, performance and genomic data points supporting accelerated genetic progress.
