Finishers - are you ready for a challenge?

A few pig finishers have already said they want to join in our 2TS Finisher Challlenge this year. BPEX has challenged English producers to see how much further they can improve growing pig production by October this year.
If you've heard about it and are curious about what is actually involved, contact one of us in the BPEX knowledge transfer (KT) team to find out more. Then you just need say you are ready to go for it and we'll take it from there.

We will help identify areas of ‘lost potential’ and find ways to fine tune your system. It does not matter what type of finishing system or what the starting point is – the challenge is open to all finishing and contract finishing pig units in England.The goal is to improve performance in the growing pig herd to help the industry reach the two-tonne sow target and increase profitability.
We know that, with an improved focus and often small management changes, a big difference in production can be made. We’ll be providing support throughout the challenge, particularly with performance data records and how to make best use of them.We’d like pig finishers to get in touch as quickly as possible – we’re excited to see what can be achieved by October 2012!There will also be prizes for ‘most improved production’.
