The pigs will be produced and marketed under the Waldo Whiteshire United name.
Waldo and Whiteshire have built their genetic programs through generations of genetic testing data analysis and selection based on BLUP technology, individual animal data and general husbandry. Both firms continue research and development in product development, meat quality evaluation and molecular genetic applications.
Both companies have maternal and terminal pure lines. Additional lines include great grandparent, grandparent, hybrid and composites. The expanded multi-site system will serve production systems of all sizes with healthy, productive breeding stock.
Waldo and Whiteshire will maintain their independent production sites and genetic improvement programs, while utilizing their combined genetic assets.
