Special Column: Overall Renovation Project of Modern Livestock Housing

            TSC plans to invest NTD 10.74 billion on the overall renovation of 13 modern livestock houses from 2019 to 2023. The pig houses will adopt equipment of negative pressure ventilation and water curtain, biogas power generation (10 vertical manure recycling facilities, biogas energy center and compost depots), and solar PV power generation equipment, transforming traditional pig farms into new green livestock housing that takes into account resource recycling and reuse as well as environmental protection, changing the negative impression of polluting animal husbandry industry into an “eco-friendly space, green pig farming and green energy industry”.The features of the modern livestock housing include the followings.

  • Comfortable pig housing with negative pressure ventilation and water curtain
  • Separating rainwater from sewer and recycling
  • Smart management system:RFID ear tag positioning and transferring management system, image monitor system.
  • Automatic feeding system: All the pigs bred by TSC are fed with “green feed” (with no antibiotics). The feed formulation is improved and adjusted or new feed formula is developed. In addition, breeding selection is conducted for production of hogs with low-use drugs, no pollution and no drug residues. The traceability system is also introduced to implement food safety compliance. 
  • Animal welfare:Good animal welfare is closely related to food safety and epidemic risks. Feeding management is carried out based on "Guidelines for Production Management in Pig Farms" of the internal control system and the "Animal Industry Act" promulgated by the Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan is also complied with. In 2020, 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.
  • Manure and urine collection system + renewable energy:Biogas is produced through the eco-digestion of the mixture of pig manure and urine as well as other agricultural waste. Fermented biogas residues and slurry can be used as fertilizer of the farmland, and the corn, soybeans and other farm produces on the farmland can be made into pig feed, enabling the circular utilization of resources available in the livestock farm. It is expected to set up vertical pig manure and urine resource recovery facilities (the biogas energy center and compost huts) to reduce GHG emissions and generate biogas power.

           The 2-stage renovation project started in January, 2019, and is scheduled to be completed in December, 2023. The operation is scheduled to start from 2024 and the full production is scheduled to start in 2025. It is expected to sell approximately 500,000 hogs annually and the target of biogas power generation is 13.57 million kWh/year. During the renovation period, the renovation and the demolition are carried out at the same time, and the scale of sow breeding is maintained at a certain level so that the renovation will not affect the domestic supply of pigs.
