Pig breeding company Hypor has delivered 700 great grandparent-generation gilts and boars to the new multiplication farm started in Vietnam by Vietnamese integrator Long An Comfeed Japfa.
In September 2011 the companies announced their agreement to form a joint venture called Japfa Hypor Genetics Co., created to establish a high-health breeding structure for Vietnam’s growing pig sector. Currently, Vietnam is estimated to have about 4 million breeding sows. Between 2011 and 2015 its production is forecast to grow by 36 percent to reach 2.6 million metric tons per year, in response to the stimulation of domestic meat consumption due to rising personal incomes.
Hypor is part of multi-species breeding group Hendrix Genetics. Long An Comfeed Japfa, with headquarters in Vietnam’s Long An province, is the Vietnamese arm of Japfa Comfeed of Indonesia. In Vietnam it is a feed producer as well as having activities in poultry and pig production. The Japfa enterprise has approximately 14,000 sows, but plans to increase the number rapidly to around 75,000.
