Trouw Nutrition, the animal nutrition division of Nutreco, announces Janssen Varkens as the newest partner to its global network of validation farms. The closed swine farm, with 500 sows and 4200 fattening pigs, is located in Castenray near the Trouw Nutrition Swine Research Facility outside Boxmeer, the Netherlands. The pigs at Janssen Farm are delivered to Westfort, a slaughterhouse regarded for its modernized capabilities and sustainable food chain. Over the years, the farm makes use of RFID ear chips, which contributes to transparency and traceability through the pork chain by monitoring individual pig data from farm to slaughterhouse. The RFID- ear chips can collect and provide data on pigs’ body weight, growth, health, vaccination programme, antibiotic use, and carcass traits from birth until slaughter and from insemination until the end of lactation. In this manner, the full production cycle is captured, and an online data connection is established from feed to fork.

Family Feeding Matters: A Collaborative Project Inspired by Natural Sow-Piglet Behaviours to Ease Weaning Transition

R&D
Suckling is an innate process, but piglets generally learn what and where to eat and drink from the sow and their littermates. Such mimicking processes do not constantly occur in conventional pig production. Then, how to facilitate the piglet's feeding and drinking behaviour, thereby easing the transition from sow's milk to solid feed? That is is what the Family Feeding Matters project launched three years ago through collaborative efforts of Vereijken-Hooijer, the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture Nature & Food Quality (LNV), and Trouw Nutrition seek to uncover with Wageningen University & Research (WUR) as executive partner. WUR published today the first findings.
