Did you know?
Gilt performance makes up 20-25% of a herd's total performance at any time. Good gilt management will help to optimise sow longevity by reducing the number of prematurely culled animals (culled before parity three).  See Action for Productivity 33 for more.

In 2017 we held a series of meetings with industry experts, providing practical advice on optimising productivity from your gilts. The meetings addressed three crucial aspects of gilt management: optimising longevity and lifetime potential, nutrition and practical considerations for first parity sows.
