Why choose TSG for your boars
1. Risk Management
Many genetics companies are choosing to house boars in more
than one facility. This duality provides a second site reserve for your
genetics; protecting against risk of disease and disaster.
TSG offers state of the art, fully filtered air, 100% of the
time. Supplies entering the barn are treated in an air locked area for
disinfection prior to entry. Delivery drivers access the stud from a
separate area which is fully cleaned and disinfected after each delivery.
3. Health monitoring
PRRS appears first in the blood. Each production day TSG
takes blood samples which are processed for same-day results, even on
holidays. Afternoon delivery schedules mean that TSG can assure that semen
test results are final prior to use of the semen on farm. Strict protocols
are in place between TSG and the third party lab to ensure that any positive
result is effectively acted upon and communicated to our customers before
use on farm.
We know that boars respond well to constant temperatures.
Both animal health and fertility are improved with our climate controlled
system. Our system provides cooling in summer months and heating in winter,
with exhausted moisture being vented outside the barns. Ammonia requires
moisture to become airborne, venting the moisture outside greatly improves
air quality inside.
5. Boar Viewing and Meeting Room
At TSG we feel it is important to provide facilities where
you and your customers can view your boars. We are equipped with a
professional quality Boardroom with capacity for 12-25. A viewing window and
radio communications with barn staff provides opportunity to see the animals
and ask questions of the staff who handle them every day.
6. Entrance Protocols
All boars entering the TSG barns are blood tested, held in
isolation for a period of time and re-tested. Each isolation batch is tested
by the CFIA prior to being released into our main facility.
