Producer Services

TVC has the ability to match individual producer pigs to the extensive choice of outlets from heavy cutters to lighter pigs into specialised processors.

Due to high numbers marketed they obtain advantageous contracts over all classes of pigs.

From the selection of suitable breeding genetics to the prompt payment for pigs, be it finished pigs, weaners, stores or cull stock TVC are involved.

Data Analysis

The analysis of carcase data and the feed back of health indicators on the slaughter line form an important link in the chain enabling management & veterinary decisions to be made. This improves product suitability and increases margins for the pig farmer.

Contracts with all the leading pig processors are available to TVC producers.

Health Feedback

Every time a pig is slaughtered this is effectively a post mortem examination. TVC devote a lot of time in abattoirs examining carcases and feeding the information gathered back to individual farmers, enabling them and their vet’s to make rational decisions regarding health plans and disease control.

Disease costs money. Identifying which diseases are an issue enables strategies to be put in place on farm thus reducing disease levels and increasing profitability.
