Pig genetic supplier Topigs announced the appointment of André Costa as general manager of Topigs do Brazil, effective August 1, 2013. Costa has worked for Topigs since 2010 as a geneticist and technical manager.

"Taking over the general management position of a company like Topigs is both a challenge and a big opportunity," Costa said. "We will continue providing our customers with solutions in genetics that maximize economic results of the swine production chain. Our goal is that when the pork producer thinks about efficiency, the first thing that comes to his mind is Topigs do Brazil.''
