The National Swine Registry formed in 1994 as a result of the consolidation of the American Yorkshire Club, the Hampshire Swine Registry and the United Duroc Swine Registry. In January 1998, the American Landrace Association joined the NSR. These four breed organizations are located in one central office in West Lafayette, Ind.
The NSR’s services include litter registrations, performance pedigrees, breed promotion and marketing assistance. As well, the NSR has created various educational materials, including a swine-judging video. The NSR is capable of meeting all of your genetic needs, including free genetic consultation, across-herd genetic evaluations, and a National Four-Breed Sire Summary. This National Sire Summary is published every six months and includes all trait leaders in each breed.
The four breeds comprising the NSR are making significant contributions to the overall profitability of the swine industry. Hampshires, Landrace, Durocs and Yorkshires represent 87 percent of the total purebred hog population in the United States.
