New TOPIGS A.I. Station in Germany

TOPIGS SNW is starting up an SPF A.I. station in Germany. The German subsidiary of TOPIGS has taken over the Stockhausen A.I station in the east German federal state of Saxony. Following a renovation, the station will provide room in the autumn for 150 TOPIGS breeding and terminal boars.

At the new TOPIGS station, boars will produce SPF semen for pig farms in the eastern federal states of Germany. The sales of TOPIGS genetics is exhibiting strong growth in this region. In addition to this, Stockhausen A.I. station will also export semen to Eastern and Central Europe.

TOPIGS SNW has grown in just a few years to become one of the most important providers of genetics on the German market. The market share in sows is more than 10%. With the setting up of Stockhausen A.I. station, TOPIGS is taking the next step in the introduction of TOPIGS terminal boars onto the German market.
