About Us

History

S&S Farms was founded in 1987 by the father and son team of Carl and Tom Salayer and has always specialized in the production of high health status pigs for the biomedical industry.
Our goal is to consistently provide customers with the highest quality pig model. We ship our animals throughout the United States and Canada in our own climate-controlled vehicles. Delivery by commercial air via private courier is also available.

S&S Farms maintains a Class A U.S.D.A. licensed closed herd that is managed on an “All in All out” basis to ensure the highest health standards possible. Both the Domestic Pigs and Yucatan minipigs are raised at the same facility and are identical in health status. Both breeds being identical in health status allows them to be housed within the same air space at your facility.

Copies of health monitoring reports are available upon request.

Locations

S&S Farms maintains its Yucatan and Domestic pig breeding herds in Southern California and a Yucatan minipig grower inventory in Southwest Michigan. Both locations have the advantage of being isolated from other swine herds providing excellent biosecurity for our animals. Facilities have been designed with the sole purpose to produce pigs for the biomedical industry. Both farms have biosecurity measures in place to promote animal health and well-being. Every aspect ranging from nutrition to environmental controls is continuously monitored.

Customer references are available upon request.

Upcoming Events

S&S Farms attends AALAS every year. Look for our booth where you can meet the owners and people who personally care for the pigs you receive! Whether you are an existing or new customer stop by so that we can hear feedback or answer questions about our pigs. You can find information regarding AALAS at www.aalas.org.

What’s New

S&S Farms held a groundbreaking event at our new Indiana location on August 30th, a new breeding, farrowing and grower facility for both Yucatan and Domestic pigs. The event was attended by customers and friends of S&S Farms, also in attendance was the Lt. Governor of Indiana and several state and county representatives. Speeches were made, the ground was broken, and fittingly we all enjoyed a roast hog for lunch. We look forward to the completion of phase one and two of this facility in the fall of 2019.
