In a week, the National Swine Registry (NSR) will move to a new office building located only two miles away and still in the northwest corner of West Lafayette, IN.

The new building is an 8,000-sq.-ft. modern and spacious facility to meet the growing needs of NSR staff and programs.

“Our current building, in addition to having maintenance problems, is no longer big enough to meet the needs of the expanding NSR staff,” says NSR CEO Darrell Anderson. “Our small break room is also the board room, storage room and copy room, and as of June, the office for our newest employee.”

The current office structure was built in 1956 and was purchased by the American Yorkshire Club (AYC) in 1975.

When Anderson started as CEO of the AYC in 1987, there were nine employees; in 1994, the Hampshire Swine Registry and the United Duroc Swine Registry merged with the AYC to form the NSR. In 1998, the American Landrace Association joined.

Besides the merger, additions have come in the form of the National Junior Swine Association, the department of Genetics and Technical Services and new shows and services, boosting staff size to 14 plus three field representatives and two employees of the American Berkshire Association.

“On behalf of the entire staff of the NSR, I would like to express appreciation to the American Yorkshire Club board members for their decision to purchase the new office building, and their continued support of the staff and our work,” Anderson says.

The new address of the NSR will be 2639 Yeager Road, West Lafayette, IN 47906. The mailing address remains the same at Box 2417; the phone remains (765) 463-3594 and the fax remains (765) 497-2959.
