Genchain: Use of sensors and blockchain traceability applied to genetic improvement involving crossbred pigs

The GENCHAIN project has been approved in the AEI 2021b aid line

Project description

The genetic improvement of animals is a feasible way to adapt meat production to new needs for sustainability and adaptation to climate change.
Efforts to improve the ability of animals to transform feed into meat must continue in a context in which the environmental conditions for raising animals can change significantly.

The traditional genetic improvement developed in the last 30 years has made it possible to have animals that are 30-35% more efficient. One of the ways to continue improving the sustainability of the production system is through the application of genetic improvement programs based on the use of information from crossbred pigs. This improvement system is based on the control of productive yields and carcass and meat quality in crossbred pigs resulting from the crossing of different breeds. From the information generated, the purebred parents that produce the most efficient and best quality animals can be identified.

The aim

The main objective of the project is to investigate new digital technologies within a blockchain system, to improve the individual genealogical traceability of animals and improve the sustainability of pork production.

The Blockchain system will allow agri-food companies to have true and automated information traceability to avoid accidental errors associated with the intervention of the farm operator. In this way, decisions can be made quickly and in real time. It will also allow the data of each batch to be analyzed objectively and correctly, optimizing the production processes in pig farms.
