Topigs: More breeding pigs head for China

Topigs has imported 550 more top breeding pigs into China. This is the third import in three months.

The pigs were imported from the Topigs high health SPF nucleus farms in Canada and were delivered to a feed company in Shanghai that has built a brand new breeding farm. These imported breeding pigs will become the top of an integrated pork production pyramid.
Topigs is continuing to build up its presence in China, the world’s biggest market for breeding pigs. This third successful import in a row means that a total of 2050 Topigs breeding animals have been imported in three months.
The imported pigs came from SPF nucleus breeding farms in Europe and Canada and will provide China’s fast-growing professional pig industry with the genetics it needs to realise high-level production.
