The increase in the herd’s productivity depends on good breeds, balanced feed formulation, feed intake, barn microclimate conditions, biosecurity, health & husbandry care… in the farm. Breeding research and technology investment is a prerequisite for sustainable development.

Regarding the breed, BaF has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Genesus Group of Canada on the monopoly of pig breed sources in the Vietnamese and Myanmar markets. Genesus is a well–known company, ranked 3rd in the world in research and production of high-quality breeds, using marker technology and genomic selection, and has high reputation in genetic improvement. The purebred pigs of Genesus are suitable for breeding conditions in Vietnam with many advantages such as good adaptation, rapid weight gain, and high birth rate. These pigs have good appearance, lean, thin skin, long body, good muscle mass, high carcass weight, and lean meat that meet the requirements of producers and consumers.

The farms system is located away from residential areas and other farms. Optimal farming density, suitable farm climatic conditions, biosecurity assurance, improved productivity, and reduced costs due to significant reduction in operating costs in terms of electricity, water, maintenance, medicines, and labor cost. The new farm model is standardized and synchronized with the most modern equipment and technology transferred from European and American corporations. The farms are built with prefabricated houses to increase the durability & air tight. The whole set of pig farm equipment is 100% hot dipped galvanized & stainless steel material. The barn concrete’ slats has high Mac intensity, up to 300 – 350 with suitable slats openings to ensure the dry floor for pigs in most of the time. The automatic cooling & ventilation system ensures a stable temperature suitable for pigs in different ages, increasing reproduction successful rate of farrowing sows, which bring great economic benefits. The septic pits under the pig pen’s slats help prevent harmful odors effectively. Furthermore, the automatic feeding system is supplied from the central silos into each pig pen, setting the required amount of feed for each type of pig; therefore, the pigs can eat according to their needs and preferences.

The waste treatment process, including the manure and waste water drainage system, is built as a closed system. Waste reservoir systems such as biogas, sedimentation tank, etc, are fully lined with canvas, combined with the waste water treatment system to create a closed process. The treated water meets the A quality standard of the Ministry of Health and is can be reused. Biosecurity is thoroughly controlled from the outside. All vehicles such as pig & feed trucks, etc. are thoroughly washed & disinfected outside the farms and not allowed to go inside the farms. People from outside entering the farms are isinfected & showered and isolated for 2 – 3 days in a separate isolation area. Before joining the production areas, they are disinfected & take shower once more. Currently, BaF owns a system of 15 sow and finishers farms located across the country, such as a nucleus farm with 1,200 sow great-grandparent sows in Binh Phuoc province; 2,400 parent sows  in Vung Tau province; 2,400 parent sows in Binh Thuan province; 2,400 parent sows in Thanh Hoa province; 1,200 grandparent sows in Hoa Binh; 2,400 grandparent sows in Tay Ninh province; 5,000 grandparent sows in Phu Yen – these sites will reach full capacity in the first quarter of 2022 and other farms in Vinh Phuc, Binh Thuan, Binh Duong, Nghe An, Daklak, etc.In the fourth quarter of 2021, BaF launched a new modern farm of 30,000 pigs and one farm of 5,000 sows, increasing its capacity to supply the market from 20,000 finishers fresh pork per month to 30,000 finishers fresh pork per month in the first quarter of 2022. With a long–term strategy and methodical preparation, BaF expects to receive positive business results in the future. Specifically, BaF aims to build 35 – 40 more pig farms nationwide by 2023; invest more to expand the herds to 45,000 sows at all levels with top productivity and quality; increasing to 1,000,000 commercial pigs sold through the stores to meet the market’s demand for clean, fresh and delicious pork.
