Catch up online with pig producer event presentations

Videos of all the speakers at the BPEX Regional Producer Events are available to catch up with online. The programme featured presentations on how to improve key aspects of pig production management at every stage of the cycle from insemination through to sale, in order improve the pig meat output for every square metre of the unit. 

The events identified key aspects of pig management from breeding through to finishing where changes can be made to improve output. It requires a combination of a number of things; there’s no silver bullet.

The presentations and on-farm video footage offer plenty of practical take-home messages for people who work with the pigs day to day.

In the breeding herd, the speakers covered what makes the biggest difference to weaned pig quality and how to manage the small pig at weaning.

The ‘growth challenge’ in the finishing herd was also addressed and the programme concluded with a discussion of the costs per kg of pig meat produced and the importance of routine data collection and analysis.
