LARGE WHITE-Line 36
The Rattlerow Large White lines have been developed from the start of Rattlerow in 1954 and over time they have gained a reputation for productivity and efficiency. Testing and selection concentrates on improvement in reproductive traits. Numbers born and reared, weaning weight, feed intake, physical soundness and regular breeding under commercial environments are key factors measured and used within the Rattlerow BLUP programme. Collaboration of the genetic lines and selection programme with Rattlerow Seghers NV has brought about a significant increase in the productivity of this line to ensure our customers benefit from a lift in prolificacy.
