customized to the pig producers’ specific needs. In a next step, SUISAG will make the Cloudfarms Mobile App together with the SuisDataManager available to all interested pig producers in Switzerland and Germany.
“So far, individual tracking is only common on specialized breeding farms, whereas on production farms, pigs are typically managed as groups, not as individuals. Now, each animal receives a digital “passport”, which can be used throughout the supply chain,” says Cloudfarms’ Managing Director Jens Toppenberg. “Allowing more traceability, transparency and precision, individual management of pigs is the foundation to address key challenges of the pig industry such as food safety, animal health, efficient and sustainable production, and full transparency for consumers.”
In combination with the existing Field-to-Fork Traceability Platform from Cloudfarms, the “Pig Passport” enables integrators, pig producers, feed mills and processors to create added value along the supply chain. For example, they can track and sort individual pigs, according to parent lines or type of feed consumed. This way, Cloudfarms supports the industry in meeting the growing demand for safe and nutritious food at affordable prices, while improving operational management and reducing environmental impact.
