Thiên Thuan Tu'ng will breed TOPIGS 40 sows that are famous for their robustness and high-level performance in a tropical climate like Vietnam’s. The feed efficient Talent finisher boar will also be available on the Vietnamese market. The breeding stock to start production of TOPIGS genetics in Viet Nam will arrive in April 2012 from TOPIGS’ high-health nucleus farms in Canada.

De Heus Viet Nam will provide the feed for the breeding farm of Thiên Thuan Tư'ng. TOPIGS genetics will be available for the market through De Heus Viet Nam. This means that the clients of De Heus Viet Nam will be provided with the best genetics.

They will construct a state-of-the-art farm in a less pig-dense area that has all of the facilities needed to breed top quality TOPIGS genetics."
