Producers focus on farrowing performance

Feedback from our 2TS Focus on Farrowing events has been gathered and the numbers have been crunched. Between 70 and 80% of the 300+ attendees were pig producers, with the others representing the allied industry.

It was great to see so many producers there, keen to pick up new advice and ways to keep improving herd performance. A few thoughts and comments from them after the event:

“Well done for organising an excellent conference at Cirencester. Everyone who helped pull this together should be very proud. An excellent turnout and a very good mixture of speakers combining technical and practical aspects.”

“We’ll go away and think about our dry sow feeding.”

“We always learn something new from BPEX meetings and this was a really excellent event. We will be re-thinking how quickly we start cross-fostering piglets and make sure they have had enough maternal colostrum first.”

“Great presentations by the two producers. Very interesting!”
