The Super Six - comparing pig unit performance

We have put together a farm case study showing how one pig unit’s performance compares to the Super Six Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on the BPEX website.

It includes notes on the unit’s management practices and what contributes to its performance. Good record keeping is essential to pinpoint which areas of performance to prioritise and to monitor progress.

The KPIs section on the BPEX website uses Agrosoft data and allows producers to make comparisons between their business and the average, top third and top 10% of producers. It's a straightforward way to review the most important areas of pig unit performance

There is information for indoor breeding herds, outdoor breeding herds, rearing herds 7-35kg, finishing herds 35-110kg and combined rearer-finisher herds 7-110kg.
