Health and Biosecurity
Since the company's founding in 1982, Fast Genetics has maintained its outstanding health status.
The original stocking of animals was done by placing caesarean derived piglets into the nucleus farm. Since then, no live animals have entered Fast Genetics' nucleus herds and new genes are only introduced by way of embryo transfer. Herd health is monitored through monthly serology and preserved under its veterinary staff's guidance.
Due to remoteness and natural isolation of its production facilities, Fast Genetics enjoys unique biosecurity advantages that contribute to herd health preservation. In addition to the natural biosecurity advantages, Fast Genetics owns and operates its own feed mill, transportation fleet, and truck wash. The dedicated feed mill only supplies Fast Genetics' herds, allowing for herd health to be preserved. Only owned trucks and trailers are permitted on farm premises, as Fast Genetics interlines with third party transportation companies for customer deliveries. Fast Genetics administers extreme barn entry protocols of both materials and people.
