In 1988, Mr. Lefebvre sold the farm to his two sons, Alain and Donald. With the strong minds of entrepreneurs, Alain and Donald wanted to achieve even more. They wanted a feeding system that would solve some of their own farm problems. Working every day in the farm, they realized that feeding the pigs is a recurrent job that needs precision. And that’s where Jyga Technologies came in!
In 1994, Jyga’s systems, named GESTAL, offered possibilities to optimize the productivity of each sow. In 2004, the Lefebvre brothers bought Jyga Technologies and, true to their expertise, they launched and marketed the first computerized swine feeding system in the world. It is not surprising to see this company being distinguished from the others by the diversity of its products.
In 2013, less than 30 years later, after buying 3 existing sites and building 2 others, the two brothers were the owners of a 2200 sow farm with about 2500 acres of crops. As very hard workers, they were able to expand Jyga Technologies to a worldwide company, with a first international office in Germany.
