Best Genetics, a Chinese swine genetic company, and Genesus, a Canadian-based swine breeding company, signed a cooperation agreement on Feb 9, at the 5th Canada-China Business Forum. This agreement stipulates the purchase of top pedigree pigs, and Genesus will provide continued genetic program support. With this cooperation, China will have lean meat, safe, high-quality pork at an affordable price, the representatives agree.

“Best Genetics has adopted western barn facilities and management processes, employs the best genetics from the world with the objective of becoming the best genetic company in China,” company officials say.

Genesus has the largest registered purebred herd in the world, with many Genesus herds producing up to 30 pigs per sow per year. Best Genetics is founded by Monita Mo, who wants to create a swine genetics company in China that produces lean meat and safe pork at a reasonable price.
