BPA Bloodline Audit 2016 - Large Black
Numbers for the Large Black have stayed very similar since last year although we have increased the number of breeders by 6. There is no cause for concern within the boar lines although constant evaluation takes place to highlight any specific individuals that might be over or under represented within the national herd. There are some female lines that need to be considered during this year to try to increase numbers, which will help maintain the genetic diversity of the breed.
Thank you to all our breeders who completed their surveys without too much prompting, breeders now see the importance in maintaining accurate figures for our breed and this makes the surveyors job much easier
