Under the new circumstance of consumers’ increasingly higher demand for safe food and challenges of imported pork and domestic high cost, DEXING’s innovation will lead the industry toward intelligence and high efficiency. Guangdong DEXING is a leading explorer.

In the afternoon, the forum of operating model and efficiency in swine production was held in Shantou, analyzing pig farms' investment dynamics.
In her speech, Xi Chunling, Director of ICCAW said, operating with high standard of animal welfare will help pig farms of small to medium size to stand out, and she also ask for more attention on animal welfare, so as to lead a better life.
Wang Lixian, Director-general of Swine Session of CAAV pointed out that genetic performance has not been fully cultivated is a major challenge in China now, but with the practice of animal welfare, traditional pig breeding will be driven to be healthier and more efficient.
Yao Yanqing, Deputy General Manager of Guangdong DEXING Food Co., Ltd. as well as Director of Shanghai DEMU Equipment & Technology Co., Ltd. (Shanghai DEMU is a subsidiary of DEXING, to provide holistic pig-farm building turnkey solution for the industry, including pig-house design, procurement, construction, implementation and people training) pointed out that with a comprehensive layout, pigs in DEXING Nordic Smart Farm can be moved with high efficiency and it attaches great importance to animal welfare, economic return and talent training. It should be noted that experience from abroad cannot be copied without consideration of varieties in climate, disease control and farm workers. With the help of DEXING's 20 years of experience in pig breeding, DEMU clearly understands what pigs need, and will help them solve problems of farm building and talent shortage with DEXING Nordic Smart Farm. Besides, the development of the industry is limited by land and environmental protection.
DEXING Nordic Farm is characterized by efficient movement of pigs, short period of construction, efficient operation, effective disease controlling and efficient use of land.
According to Ms. Yao, practicing animal welfare in pig farms is to allow them eat well, live well and be healthy. Pigs raising under high level of animal welfare is guaranteed with less stress, which improves pork quality and food safety from the origin.
With adequate and enough lightning in the pens, farrowing rate is improved efficiently. And such lightning programme is now applied massively in Guangdong DEXING, with which the average farrowing rate 7 days after weaning is as high as 92%.
Hu Songlei, General Manager of Shanghai DEMU Equipment & Technology Co., Ltd. introduced the treatment of waste water, odor and dead pigs, and pointed out that the farm is equipped with an effective air cleaning system.
Meanwhile, he said, animal welfare will bring pigs'potential to the most, and strengthen the brand of DEXING; besides, good environmental protection is necessary for the farm's sustainable development. Shanghai DEMU Equipment & Technology Co., Ltd is a subsidiary of GUANGDONG DEXING, to provide holistic pig-farm building turnkey solution for the industry. With modular design and construction, large-scale centralized procurement and one-stop after sales service, consolidated project management is realized in Shanghai DEMU.
Dr. Rob Gregory from World Animal Protection pointed out that food safety and product differentiation is getting increasing attention. Improved sow health and welfare can lead to reduced reliance on antibiotics and other drugs. This in turn can be used as a marketing advantage.Generally, consumers view higher welfare meat as “high quality”, “better tasting” and “healthy”.
Advantages of group housing include reduced labour costs, reduced feed waste, reduced stress and improved fertility, and improved piglet size and health, which guarantee long term economic and productivity benefits.
With the placement of feeders (ESFs), waiting sows are not disturbed. Sows leaving the feeders are guided to dunging and drinking area. Sows in the lying area have a view of the ESF and can see when is their turn to eat. All this leads to calmer groups. A successful stockperson is willing to learn new skills needed for sow group management, including: evaluation of body condition, health, walking, behaviour; all while sows are in the group, builds trust with the sows by moving slowly and acting quietly (but firmly) around them. When sows trust their caretakers they are easier to move and work with, and it can improve reproductive performance.
Dr. Connor and Micheal Ellermann from Carthage & MHJ Agritech Consulting Limited pointed out that the major challenges thatChina’s swine industry faces include low manufacturing efficiency, lack of systematic manufacturing management and health care management, and more seriously, lack of talent and relevant technology education. The key to these problems lies in talent and ideas. As for the breeding practice abroad, the farm management personnel vocational education system in Denmark continuously cultivates and transports a great number of practical talents for pig farms inside and outside Denmark, while most of the workers at the production line are immigrants, and they are trained in the traditional master-prentice way and in a standard operation management procedure.
China is now facing a great challenge of lacking talents, because most graduates are not willing to work at the production line for long term, not to mention the postgraduates and even the students with doctoral degree. As a result, the companies are facing talent mobility of high rate and the youngsters don’t get sustainable development in pig farms which are under closed-off management. So he suggests that after establishing a systematic management system of manufacture and health care, practical application of advances technology, relevant science research, innovative solutions and breeding technology, and also continuous self-development of managing staff are all required for promoting the sustainable development of China's pig farms.
At last, he said that consumers' demands have changed a lot. That’s why we need reeducation desperately. Only by abstracting the essence from the finest technology, can we get on the way to success.
Mr. Wang and Mr. Harry stated briefly that with the help of efficient feeding system together with the ventilation and cooling system, Guangzhou Veldman can help a lot in improving the farm performance and working efficiency. The Turn Key Ceremony was held later.
After the forum, Experience exchange on Shanghai DEMU Smart Farms and Experience exchange on Guangdong DEXING International Swine training centre were held separately in order to provide the guests with an opportunity for in-depth exchanges on various aspects of the Smart Farm, such as construction, designing, operation and personnel training.
According to the guests present at the ceremonies, the Nordic Smart Farm will bring profound impact onChina's swine industry. This is more of a breakthrough in traditional pig breeding practice than being an inauguration ceremony. Moreover, this kind of attempts is of great value for the future development of swine industry. It is the very reason why a number of entrepreneurs came to Shantou for the ceremonies despite the threat of typhoon.
