Chinese breeding farm buys 900 pigs from Europe
900 head of breeding pigs were exported last week from Genesus nucleus farms in the UK to Taiyu (Tycoon) Breeding Pig Company in China under the surveillance of Genesus Managing Director Europe, Helena Echberg and Simon Oxby, Technical Support. "Gu Yaping Genesus GM China met the plane with Mr Zhu CEO of the Swine Division for Tycoon to supervise the unloading of the pigs and transportation to the quarantine farm. The pigs were reported to be active and well upon their arrival. Previously, Genesus entered into agreements with Tycoon to supervise the Genetic program and for Tycoon to market Genesus Brand breeding pigs to the local market. Genesus strategy, according to Lyle Jones Director of Sales China, is for a Genesus Super Nucleus in each major region to make Genesus Brand breeding pigs more available to the breeding farms of China," informed the supplier.

Tycoon previously had 1000 GGP sows, 5000 GP sows and 10,000 commercial sows prior to construction of the new genetic nucleus farm for the Genesus Brand pig production.
