OSIP tests only identifiable, nonsynthetic lines. The parentage of all animals tested through OSIP is verifiable - we guarantee it! This means, for example, that any F1 (first cross) gilt from OSIP-tested parents is guaranteed to be a first generation animal that carries with it maximum heterosis. When buying breeding stock tested through OSIP, producers have access to the animals’genetic history. OSIP breeders use purebred, traceable seed stock to reduce genetic variability.

OSIP is an independent, transparent program that generates verifiable, audited data to its participants and their customers. Progressive commercial and multiplier herds wanting known genetics of Canadian origin rely on OSIP-tested pigs. OSI impacts 50% of the hogs marketed in Ontario.
