Topigs exported 355 gilts from the Netherlands to Japan in March, the first time that Topigs breeding material has been sent to Japan, according to a Topigs press release. The Topigs 20 gilts of various ages came from Van Beek SPF Varkens in Lelystad.

After a state quarantine period the gilts will go to their final destination, a group of cooperating pig farmers. This group of independent pig farms reportedly produces about one-third of Japanese pigs.

In June, a second consignment with purebred line animals and terminal boars will be sent from the SPF nucleus breeding farm of Topigs in Canada.
