Partners in the project include sow management system providers LeeO, PigExpert and Christensen Farms.

Topigs Norsvin has announced the launch of a new data exchange platform. The new platform has been created to facilitate the growing need for safe, reliable and online information exchange between Topigs Norsvin and its worldwide business partners. It therefore brings global collaboration with our partners to the next level.

The platform is a scalable open data platform in the cloud based on the latest web technology and makes use of ePIGS, the international Agri sector exchange standard for pigs from AgroConnect.

Topigs Norsvin built the platform together with VAA Data Works using REST-API(JSON) technology to develop farmevent-based web services as the building blocks. Other partners in the project are sow management system providers LeeO, PigExpert and Christensen Farms.

Over the next few months, farms that use one of these sow management systems will be connected to the new data exchange platform. At the same time, Topigs Norsvin will further develop this new technology for use with other sow management systems.
