If you could guarantee that every pig that comes across your table will be of consistent size and weight-for-age, always clean and healthy and always of the same strain - would it contribute toward better and more consistent data?
Would it help to know that every one of your swine models is not just healthy now, but has always been healthy? Would you like to know that you will never again spend your valuable time collecting and analyzing data, only to find on necropsy, surprises that force you to discard that data?
Such problems are frequently encountered when trying to use swine from a commercial herd. But, because specialized mini-pigs are often cost prohibitive, many investigators believe that they have no recourse.
There is a Cost Effective & Guaranteed Satisfactory Alternative!
We at K Bar Livestock, LLC know what it takes to produce clean, accurate and reproducible data. Our domestic swine are from a total confinement herd from a very exclusive swine breeding station where the sows farrow in crates and pigs spend their first twenty weeks on raised wire floors inside climate controlled buildings. Their water is made available exclusively via nipple spigots. Human contact is strictly limited and disinfectant measures are rigidly enforced. All pigs routinely receive Iron Dextran to prevent anemia and rotational worming to ensure they are parasite free.
We have all the most common purebreds as well as high quality crossbreeds available. They are usually docile and friendly from frequent positive human contact.
Our most frequently ordered size range is 3 to 90 kg. but we can deliver any age or size you might require, from neonate to adult. We will be happy to provide timed pregnant sows, as well as neonates and early weaned, bred to suit your individual needs.
Litter mates or non-related groups are available, as well as early weaned piglets when necessary. K Bar pigs will always be within 3 days of the same age at any given weight.
With pigs from K Bar Livestock, LLC , you can have all of the consistency and quality of the expensive specialty mini-pigs at a fraction of the cost.
