POLAND - Pig breeding and genetics company Hypor has signed an agreement with the family-owned Farmers Sp.zoo, a Polish agricultural company, located in Goldap in the North East of Poland.

The new partnership will produce and distribute breeding stock in to the Polish market and a brand new farm has been constructed to serve those needs.

The new 700-sow unit was completed at the end of 2007, and high health stock was delivered from the Hypor nucleus farms in Germany. Plans are already underway for another farm located in the same area. It too will have a capacity of 700 sows and will produce Hypor PS gilts.

Both farms will maintain a very high health status and are located in a low pig density area to ensure the best high health genetics to its customer, says the company.

Attributes

Mr. Peter Kowalewski, Managing Director of Farmer Sp.zoo said the distribution of Hypor high health genetics in Poland will be a key attribute and the agreement marks a milestone in his company's development.

A new unit and a new Polish partnership hopes to boost Hypor's European business

"The superior genetics will have a positive impact on our industry with benefits in efficiencies for producers and fine quality pork for retailers and consumers," he added.

Hypor's Regional Manager Mr. Ton ten Dam said he was very proud to be working with a progressive company such as Farmer Sp. zoo.

"With Hypor’s breeding know-how and local expertise of our partners, we are able to further develop the Polish market rapidly with benefits for the whole chain," he said.

Hypor, part of the Hendrix Genetics, terms itself 'the World's local pig breeder' and is globally the fastest growing breeding company. It is committed to providing superior genetics, which support profitability throughout the pork meat value chain. The company has strategically located breeding centers in North America, Europe and Asia.
