“At Elmspring Colony we use the Full Genesus Program; PB York x PB Landrace maternal to produce our F1’s x with the Genesus Duroc terminal. Year after year we see continued genetic improvement, providing us with more options to increase our returns through performance & production efficiencies, quality, and more full valued pigs marketed.”
