Parity Distribution

 

An ideal parity distribution is difficult to achieve and maintain on a pig farm.  The major problem once the farm is repopulated is accepting the need to cull productive animals to force the correct parity profile.  However, without a correct parity profile the farm will go through 2-3 year cycles of excellent and the poor production.
