Westpork has partnered with a committed group of contract farmers to provide additional facilities and management for some of our growing pigs.
Contract growing allows these family-owned operations to diversify their income, lock in a long term stable income stream and assist them in creating a sustainable farming enterprise. Westpork employees work with our contract growers to optimise the farms operations and to ensure our high standards for welfare and sustainability are maintained for all our pigs.
Housing on these farms largely consists of shelters which are domed, tarpaulin-covered structures with straw bedding.
Approximately half of the animals Westpork sells are grown out by our family-owned and operated contract farmers.
