Japfa inaugurates a 10,000 SOW swine farm
On April 26, 2021, Japfa Comfeed Vietnam Co., Ltd. (Japfa Vietnam) inaugurated and put into operation a pig farm with 10,000 sows in Dak Nhau commune, Bu Dang district, Binh Phuoc province. The 22-hectare farm is aimed to supply breeding piglets of the best quality for the domestic market and for export in line with US standards. The hog farm targets to increase capacity to 130,000 sows by 2022.
Arif Widjaja - General Director of Japfa Comfeed Vietnam said: “The pig farm is the first of its kind in Vietnam, which has been designed and built in accordance with the latest model applied in the US, adopting cutting-edge technology in the world with all equipment being imported.”
The pig farm is built following state-of-the-art technology along with up-to-date animal husbandry equipment. All processes are operated and supervised by the Maximus Controller System, which helps manage all the farm’s activities. Particularly, to prevent pathogens, the farm is equipped with a modern air-filtering system and drying system that can help eliminate FMD, PRRS, and ASF viruses.
In addition to advanced animal husbandry technologies, sustainable development is also an orientation of Japfa Vietnam in investing and expanding production and business, especially in the animal husbandry industry. The company pays close attention to environmental protection through the installation of a drinking water-saving system, manure separation system, wastewater treatment system, and biogas system.
The fresh launching of Japfa’s pig farm with 10,000 sows is a great stride of the company in controlling all the self-contained animal husbandry processes, from genetics to breeding sources, feed, pen structure, nutrition, veterinary medicine, epidemic, and biosafety. These are key elements that affect the productivity and quality of commercial hogs, as well as the quality of pork supplied to consumers.
“We hope that when the project is put into operation, it will contribute actively to stabilizing pig prices, changing the viewpoint on animal husbandry and structure of pens, and improving Vietnam’s animal husbandry standards,” said Arif Widjaja.
