The Ministry of Agroinsdustry of Argentina, in a joint effort together with provincial and municipal governments, invested more than $935,000 in the staring-up of three pig artificial insemination laboratories.

The initiative, that today benefits 160 farmers, was carried out in the towns of La Cocha (Tucumán), Alijilán (Catamarca) and San Pedro de Guasayán (Santiago del Estero), within the framework of the project “Standardisation of pig production in the region of Albigasta”, that was carried out by the Provincial Agricultural Services Programme (PROSAP) of the Unit for the Rural Change (UCAR).

The setting up of the laboratories will allow to improve the regional productivity and to standardise the quality of pork, facilitating that the small producers can buy genetic material. These investments include not only the laboratory equipment, the purchase of air conditioning equipment and other supplies, but also the acquisition of nine boars suitable for artificial insemination.

For their part, the municipal governments of La Cocha, Alijilán and San Pedro de Guasayán financed the simultaneous building of educational farms in which training shall be offered to producers and technicians, becoming a model area in the regional pig farming sector.
