The agreement was signed between the CEO of Cefusa, José Fuertes, and the rector of the University of Murcia, José Luján, in a ceremony held in the Rectorate of the University, which has also been attended by the research team of the project.

They both signed an agreement for the continuity of a research project on pigs reproduced with an innovative assisted reproduction method.

Cefusa, a livestock company belonging to Grupo Fuertes, and the University of Murcia are collaborating on a research project to develop a pilot plant for pigs born using in vitro fertilisation techniques and its study as a model applied to health.

From the pilot plant, the researchers will monitor and control the growth, metabolism, resistance to diseases or reproductive capacity of the animals reproduced with both the new method and the conventional technique, and will be able to compare them with animals born by natural fertilization.
