The agreement was signed by Jim Long, President of Genesus and Mr Meng, General Manager of Golden Harvesta. We were pleased to have Mr Jin Wei Dong President of Well Hope and Golden Harvesta; Angel Cachuela and Fe C. Asuncion from the embassy of Canada taking an active part in the signing ceremony.

The high appetite of the Genesus hog pays dividends in the hot and humid climate in S.E. Asia and provides higher productivity, faster growth and better efficiency. Genesus pigs are strong, fast-growing with exceptional carcass eating experience.
The Genesus genetic improvement program is based on sound theory, disciplined and well-executed selection and mating programs all supported by extensive data collection and testing on live animals and carcasses. Commitment to research and development continues to enhance the existing programs and ensure that Genesus pigs will remain competitive on the future marketplace.

Mr Meng, General Manager of Golden Harvesta, selected Genesus to be the future supplier and partner in the new nucleus venture following a visit to Manitoba the home of Genesus. He was impressed by the Genesus persistentance on the registered pure breed system, how Genesus dose the genomic selection, the focus of producing the best pig in the world, and the strong relationship between the Genesus owners and all the staff.
Genesus Philippines will be a mirror image of the Genesus Canadian Genetics ran on the same genetic management, using the Genesus research and development, genetic and technical support. Genesus Philippines is totally committed to provide to their client partners the best breeding stock and technical support for the Philippine hog market.
With the strong relationship between Golden Harvesta and Genesus we feel confident that this partnership will deliver increased performance and reduced cost of production to the hog farmers of the Philippines.
