Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the groundbreaking ceremony of the 5000-sow level daughter nucleus farm on Feb. 5, 2022, to be established in Sta. Rita, Quezon, Nueva Ecija.

The P2.5 billion (B) state-of-the-art complex is a partnership project among the Department of Agriculture (DA), JG Agroventures Inc., and Pig Improvement Company (PIC).

Once operational, it will serve as a source of quality piglets for distribution under the Integrated National Swine Production Initiatives for Recovery and Expansion (INSPIRE) program of the government. A first in the country, it will serve as a model to enhance the production of piglets from breeder farms, which will be jointly undertaken by commercial hog raisers and farmers’ cooperatives and associations (FCAs).
