TOPIGS purchases Canadian nucleus farm

New location will serve as central farm for terminal sires

TOPIGS has purchased a nucleus farm in Canada, called Windy Acres, with a capacity of 750 sows, 220 boars and 4,000 fattening pigs.

The farm, near the village Malonton in Northern Manitoba, will provide TOPIGS with better breeding, better genetics and better numbers of terminal sires to supply, according to the company. Windy Acres will be TOPIGS’ central nucleus farm for terminal sires in North America, while the company's other nucleus farm in Canada, Paradise Valley, will be the maternal central nucleus farm.
