BPEX has put together a new feed crisis advice pack. The biggest and most important single cost for pig producers is feed; on average it accounts for almost 60% of total production costs.
It is no exaggeration to state that global rises in the price of feed are the biggest threat to the sustainability of English high welfare pig production and processing.
The factsheets in this new pack discuss a range of ways to make efficiencies and reduce feed waste through the weaner and finisher stages, to secure the best net margin you can.
