Animal Welfare


       Promoting animal welfare is an international trend. Good animal welfare is closely related to food safety and epidemic risks. If animals have good living conditions, it will definitely affect the quality of livestock products, and humans will benefit from it. Therefore, animal welfare is related to food safety and the problem of infectious diseases such as foot-and-mouth diseases, which will further affect the sustainable development and health of human beings. In addition to focusing on people’s dietary health and raising pigs without drug residues, TSC also attaches importance to issues such as global warming and environmental protection and looks forward to doing its part for the planet to reduce carbon emission and the amount of waste.
       All the pigs bred by TSC were fed with “green feed” (with no antibiotics), and no sulfa drugs, clenbuterol, hormones and growth hormone are used. There is no drug residue problem in meat testing and feeding management is carried out based on "Guidelines for Production Management in Pig Farms" of the internal control system and compliance with the "Animal Industry Act" promulgated by the Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan. The main components of the feed are high-quality corn, soybeans, cordyceps and lactic acid bacteria. Blood samples are taken monthly to test the antibodies to ensure that the pigs are healthy. The health breeding team composed of veterinarian, feed nutrition technician, breeding technician and R&D personnel are formed and a meeting is called every month. The feed formulation is improved and adjusted or new feed formula is researched and developedbased on the antibody test report.        In addition, breeding selection is conducted for production of hogs with low-use drugs, no pollution and no drug residues. The traceabilitysystem is also introduced to implement food safety compliance.
In the rearing of pigs, 100% of the pigs raised and sold were LYD hybrid pigs (LYD stands for Landrace, Yorkshire, and Duroc). As of 2017, the number of pigs bred was approximately 234,610. The internal control system was adopted in accordance with the "Guidelines for Production Management in Pig Farms ". 100% of pig slaughterhouses were audited by the animal humane system. In 2017, the slaughterhouses complied with transportation, handling and slaughter regulations for animals and aquatic animals. There were no violations of laws and regulations and the voluntary standards were followed.
