Agriculture Training DVD from C.H.I.P.S.

Livestock Judging
Breeding Gilt Evaluation DVD

Today’s breeding gilt is kept or culled based upon the combination of phenotype, performance records and the projected performance of the progeny.

On the program, a swine specialist discusses these factors, as well as:

  • structural soundness
  • sex characteristics
  • size and scale
  • underline
  • composition
  • performance records (EPDs)

The videotape presents differences in gilts never before seen on one tape.

A practice class with an EPD scenario, discussion of official placings and cuts and a set of collegiate oral reasons also are provided.

Objectives covered are:

  • to define the major factors necessary to select replacement gilts in a commercial operation
  • to be able to analyze and interpret a set of performance records with specific reference to positive and negative numbers
  • to evaluate and defend the placing of a breeding gilt class

The goal of Livestock Judging is to introduce the desired phenotypic traits, performance records, and purpose of breeding gilt evaluations.
