Staff: By localizing pig breeding into local communities, it helps us provide great employment opportunities to local farmers, wholesalers, and retailers to remain self-sufficient as well as supporting a host of other job opportunities.
Veterinarian Internships: In addition to providing job opportunities to local people we also have a veterinarian internship program for trainee vets.
Positive Impact: We believe positive impact goes far beyond profitability and encompasses corporate social responsibility as well as providing benefits on a socioeconomic level.
Turning Waste Into Gas: By turning our waste into methane gas and freely provide it to local residents we do our part to help with climate change.
Stress Reduction: As with humans, a pig will never get over a bad start in life, so it’s essential that their health and welfare are not compromised. All pigs at birth are placed in free housing systems, while optimum daily nutrition delivery ensures good colostrum and lactation production. All pigs are also monitored and tended to daily, making sure key stressors are minimized. These include cleanliness, nutritional requirements, ventilation, temperature, comfort, and sleep.
Space Management: Overcrowding is an industry-wide issue that has drastic consequences for pig wellbeing and quality. We place an emphasis on respecting pigs physiological and environmental needs, not only for welfare reasons but also because it is detrimental to their health and ultimately productivity. Poor spacing impacts the temperature, hygiene, sleep, and movement of pigs. We are committed to providing spacious systems, forgoing short-term profit and focusing on higher-quality productivity over the medium term, ultimately improving its reputation over the long term.
Health & Immunity Development: Strong immunity in a pig starts at birth with good colostrum intake and nutrition. Farming Futures invests in essential food and immune-enhancing supplements, while stress reduction and space management also effectively develop pig disease defense systems. Our strict biosecurity measurements also help ensure peak health and immune development.
Site Entry: Strictly no public access to the farm. All vehicles entering the farm are held in a secure area and disinfected. Drivers are screened and must go through a foot bath to kill any bacteria of their footwear as well.
