World Class Scientists Interested In Local Pig Farm

AUSTRALIA - A group of bio-geneticists and veterinary health professionals have been looking over a local pig farm before starting its conversion to a cleaner and healthier farming system.

As previously reported in the Witness, the LETU system (a natural, chemical free probiotic strain of lactobacillus) means that pig producers will no longer need to rely on antibiotics to support their numbers and the pigs will be healthier, happier and give a higher quality of meat.

The system was originally discovered and developed in Japan and China and several representatives from Asia were in Young last week to assess Mr Wally Pernec's farm and to begin preparations for the conversion.

Doctor Sheng Jiang and Professor Feng Jin were the original developers of the pro-biotic strain now known as LETU and have followed the project from day one.

"I previously studied human genetics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, around the time that SARS happened in China," Prof Jin said.

"Professor Jiang had been working with LETU for about 10 years and told me to pay more attention because he said in a lab environment it could cure SARS."
