SEGHERSgenetics USA closed an asset-purchase agreement to merge the North American genetic activities of both companies. The new organization will be known as SEGHERS NEWSHAM Genetics. Both Seghers and Newsham have been leaders in the swine genetic business. The completion of the merger places SEGHERS NEWSHAM as the third largest genetic supplier in North America.

SEGHERS NEWSHAM controls a decentralized, high-health multiplication pyramid to produce its breeding stock. The multiplication sites for Seghers products are located in Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri. Newsham breeding animals will be produced in Wyoming, Colorado and Wisconsin.

Genetic integrity of the Newsham and Seghers existing products will remain intact, say company officials.

The SEGHERS NEWSHAM team will be comprised of the current technical, sales and administrative staff from both organizations, headed by Pieter Antoon Seghers, chief executive officer.
