ANIMAL WELFARE IS PART OF OUR BUSINESS
Bejay Agro Industry has a proud legacy of producing pork and turkey in a responsible, ethical, and humane manner. We are committed to meeting the animal welfare standards we have set for ourselves as well as the standards of our customers and communities.
Our employees and grower families care for our animals on a daily basis which includes providing well maintained housing, adequate food and water, precise ventilation and temperature control, along with humane handling and transportation. These elements are just a part of the overall healthy environment we maintain for our animals. Our nutrition staff designs nutritious feeds to keep our animals productive and healthy.
We keep diseases out of our farms by enforcing a strict biosecurity program. Examples of our advanced biosecurity program include air filtration to prevent airborne diseases, mandatory shower procedures for farm personnel, and disposable boots and coveralls for farm visitors. Pest control programs are established and maintained to reduce insects, rodents, and wild animals on our farms. Our state of the art washing facilities ensure that our transportation equipment is washed and disinfected at least daily. When animals do get sick, our veterinary staff provides the appropriate treatment. When animals are treated, withdrawal periods established by the Nigeria Food and Drug Administration (NDA) are followed to ensure they are safe for human consumption. As a part of the world’s food production system, we are dedicated to producing safe and nutritious food for our customers.
