The Road to Recovery and Growth Continues

To uphold its commitment to provide healthy, superior genetics to local pig producers, PIC Philippines formally entered into a long-term partnership with JG Agroventures, Inc. through a Daughter Nucleus Multiplication Agreement.

Over the weekend, officials of JG Agroventures, Inc. led the groundbreaking ceremony for the new farm and was joined by PIC, led by its General Manager Vino Borromero, and the Department of Agriculture, led by Secretary William DAR, Victor Velonza, CEO of Maagir, which will be in charge of the design and construction of the farm, and other notable swine industry stakeholders. The event highlighted a big step towards achieving the swine industry’s goal of repopulating farms in Luzon in the coming years.

JG Agroventure’s modern farm aims to have an eventual capacity of 5,000 sows in its 80-hectare land area located in Quezon, Nueva Ecija and completion is targeted by the second quarter of this year. Once ready, it will be initially stocked with imported PIC great-grandparent (GGP) breeders, which shall form the nucleus for the multiplication and eventual distribution of much-needed breeders for commercial pig production.
