The general objective of the project is to reduce the proteolytic potential of the Iberian crossed pig reared in the field in Extremadura to increase its added value and ensure its differentiation and sustainability in the market.

About the project


Why this operating group?

In Extremadura there are local genetic lines of the Duroc breed that have not been improved by their lean growth and that, therefore, have a lower proteolytic potential.


Its introduction as finishing males in crosses with Iberian sows together with the semi-extensive production system of Extremadura, which allows to increase physical exercise, could reduce the proteolytic indexes and improve the fat infiltration and the quality of the meat.


This could lead to a differentiated product in the market of the production of the crossed Iberian pig reared in the Extremadura countryside.
