Thapar Pig Farms private limited was started with the intent of supplying high quality pork at affordable prices to all segments of the Indian society. Located in Bagpat in the state of Utterpradesh our farm has been designed keeping in mind various aspects for healthy pork production. These aspects include the environment, timely vaccination, on site welfare of animals, in house vet, trained staff and an involved group of management staff.
Thapar Pig farms is a wiener to finisher farm which means that we only sell our product once it reaches a live weight of 100-120 kgs which is usually at the age of 7-8 months. Utmost care is taken to insure that all animals maintain a healthy stress free life at the farm. A temperature between 21 degrees Celsius and 29 degrees Celsius is maintained in all pens housing pegs during summer and winter months. Utmost care is give to hygiene within the pig farm, and all pens along with animals are washed three times daily during the summer months and twice daily during the winter months. All products used for cleaning the pens are 100% organic and utmost care is given to insure that no chemicals are used within the pens where the animals are housed.
All employees working or farm help working directly with pigs are previous owners of small scale pig farms (5-10 animals). We have put them through an extensive animal husbandry course for three months to insure that they are aware about all aspects of running a professional intensive pig farm. Presently we are employing four individuals for cleaning feeding and bathing the pigs on a daily basis. All employees have a thorough knowledge of animals and maintain stringent record keeping of when and how much the pigs were fed.
Record keeping is one of the biggest challenges on a farm. Various records have to be kept, such as when a sow (female pig) mated, what was her litter size, how feed is being given to various animals, administering various medications, tagging the pigs so that no inbreeding takes place, and keeping records of average weight gain from birth to market weight. All administrative staff also has their offices on the farm which makes record keeping and cross checking easy.
