Topigs do Brasil exported 49 grandparent sow line animals and 10 talent boars to Geporbol (Genetica Porcina Boliviana) in January. This is the first time that breeding pigs have been transported from Brazil to Bolivia. 

This first pig export has opened up the commercial relationship between Topigs do Brazil and Bolivia for exporting without restrictions. Ricardo Josué Cogo, production manager of Topigs do Brasil states: “Topigs is interested in helping swine development in Bolivia, not just through the supply of genetic material but also with technical support. This export is a first step in this direction."

With a production of more than 1,250,000 crossbred gilts and more than 7 million doses of semen per year, Dutch-based Topigs is one of the biggest genetics suppliers in the world.
