GB breeding herd productivity continues to improve

Home \ Prices & Stats \ News \ 2016 \ September \ GB breeding herd productivity continues to improve

The latest physical performance data, provided to AHDB Pork by Agrosoft, showed that the productivity of the GB breeding herd continued to improve throughout the second quarter of 2016.

This increase in performance, coupled with growth in the female breeding herd, based on the latest figures from Defra, may lead to increased supplies available. However, there was a slight dip in the performance of the rearing and finishing herd, so this may peg back any increase in production volumes.
