Number of pigs population in China is approximately 500 million (almost the 50% of the world’s pig population), making it the largest swine market. Even though the number of pigs slaughtered and commercialized is about 60 million per year, the demand is not met and leaves no option other than importation.
The Chinese government exerts a strict control over the pig farms due to four main diseases that attack livestock: Foot and mouth disease, bird flu, swine flu and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, all of which are mandatory for vaccination. Likewise, the import of US pork containing ractopamine is prohibited.
There is a worldwide tendency to avoid the administration of theapies, feed additives or growth promoters on swine that are potentially harmful to humans
Our company’s immune-modulator LifeTide®SW5 targets swine and bovine, two of the most consumed food animals in the world. In response to the global tendency, we provide non-GMO growth hormone releasing hormone therapy approved by the New Zealand and Australian governments. The use of our vaccines increases the farms’ economic benefit and pork meat quality.
