David and Johan De Wilde
Elevage De Wilde
Wat is the origin of your farm ?
I fell in when I was little, at my parents' farm, there were always pigs and I had to watch the sows to have a dringual. When I moved to farming, I naturally turned to pig farming. I always took my sons with me to carry out the various tasks and I suppose that they enjoyed it because two of my three sons settled in the pig farm.
How many sows do you have right now ?
I currently have 220 white sows and two Piétrain sows to make my boars.
What is the main goal in your selection ?
I choose boars with great growth to produce my terminal boars. I also pay particular attention to the aplombs and the back to have a very wide square of ribs.
What are the other points of attention in your farm ?
I am very careful about the welfare of my animals. I am also very attentive to the health status of my farm, which is why I produce my boars myself or that I provide myself with semen in a center free from PRRS.
What is your greatest pride as a pig breeder ?
When I look back at what I have accomplished, I am especially proud to have passed on the know-how and the passion of animals to my children.
