The Ukrainian market belongs to the region of Topigs Norsvin Central Europe for already 2 years. We are responsible for the successful distribution and management of Topigs Norsvin genetics in the territory. All the people in Topigs Norsvin Central Europe fully support and contribute to the development of the Ukrainian pig breeding in order to supply our existing and new customers with high level Topigs Norsvin genetics. We aim to exploit the positive opportunities of the Ukrainian pork market for the benefit of the Ukrainian pork breeding.
We are in constant contact with CIAB (Centre for Improvement Animal Breeding Ltd), the Association of the Ukrainian Pork Producers. We do regularly communicate and try to do the best we can so that all our colleagues in CIAB and their families could survive these times despite the conditions of the war.
The history of our relationship
We concluded a Cooperation Agreement in October 2020 with CIAB.
The CIAB cooperation has developed very well following we delivered high genetic value Topigs Norsvin SPF gilts from Czech Republic and high genetic value Topigs Norsvin breeding boars from France to Ukraine in August 2021.
The experts of Topigs Norsvin Central Europe and CIAB also regularized the boar semen exports to Ukraine so that farms could be in constant contact with the European Topigs Norsvin populations and with the help of the high genetic value semen we could deliver the results of the actual genetic progress.
The gilts were delivered to the very good farmer, Agrosvit company.
The professionals of Agrosvit and CIAB launched very successfully the production with Topigs Norsvin genetics in Ukraine.
As a result, the average number of live-born piglets at first farrowing reached the level of 14,8 at the Ukrainian partner farms. Seeing the excellent results of Agrosvit more producers have contacted us and expressed interest in the Topigs Norsvin genetics in the recent months.
The developments and the horrors of war deeply depressed and saddened me just like all the people in Topigs Norsvin Central Europe. During my long career there has never been so much bad happening in the world economy, and in our personal life as in the past 3 years; ASP, Covid-19 and now the war.
All of which I would have gladly left out from my life.
I am very confident that we could leave all the bad behind us very soon relying on the proverb which provides that 3 plagues are always followed by 3 blessings.
We are all, they and us, very much look forward to the end of the war.
