Currently, we have 1,800 RAL sows, of which 700 are in the R.B.S. Mujal farm. We control the entire breeding process – through 4 generations to the abattoir. We strive to maintain the highest levels of animal welfare and include a cereal based diet. The piglets are with the mother for 28 days as opposed to the 21 days recommended for the normal white pig and the pens are much larger.
