Tianli Agritech, producer of breeder hogs, market hogs and black hogs based in Wuhan City, China, has announced the completion of a new feed facility located in Enshi Autonomous Prefecture, Hubei, China.
The new facility produces feed with its special formula for Tianli’s “10,000 families and 1,000,000 Black Hogs” program. This program was launched by Tianli and Enshi Autonomous Prefecture Government in 2011.
Through years of research, Tianli has developed its own proprietary feed formula for its own black hogs. The new facility has been designed with the annual production capacity of 30,000 tons, sufficient to supply 100,000 black hogs in Enshi Region.
It is currently in the production testing phase while the company awaits processing permits from the Bureau of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary of Hubei Province. Tianli expects to commence full production in the 2nd quarter of 2013 and contribute $15 million from this new facility, the assumption is based on the current hog feed market price.
