Resources

Taaibosch Piggery believes that by informing and sharing knowledge with new and existing farmers in the pig industry, we can play a big role in the success of many pig farms. Through building a body of knowledge, we are building the strength of our industry and partners. Taaibosch is actively researching and innovating in an effort to offer the best product to the market and to always stay ahead of the ever changing and volatile environment in which we operate. We are happy to share our findings with other producers. We are excited about the progress being made in pig genetics, feeding, building designs, and especially data and technology being used in pork production.  

As pig farmers, we face many challenges, and by sharing knowledge we can face the storms together. Feel free to use, access, and share these resources. Taaibosch – Leading Through Innovation.  

We designed a few informative graphics to be used on your farm, at the farm entrance, or to be handed to visitors:
