Pig Improvement Company (PIC) began in 1962 with six British pork producers who were dissatisfied with the status quo of breeding livestock in their country's pig industry. Following the PIC tradition, the American company, PIC USA is the leading supplier of breeding livestock in the United States. Founded in 1973 in Spring Green, Wis., PIC USA rapidly grew to be the largest of all the PIC companies worldwide. Now headquartered in Franklin, Ky., PIC USA is developing relationships with slaughterhouses and meat fabricators. With operations and licensed distributors in over 30 countries, PIC supplies more boars and gilts worldwide than any other seed stock company.
