Pig farming is a dynamic sector which has undergone enormous changes in recent years. Pork that ends up on our plate can come from anywhere in the world. At the same time consumers now are more aware of disease speared in environment compare to how they used to in the past.
The stringent demands imposed by these retailers have put pig farmers’ margins under pressure and are forcing them to make savings by using economies of scale also free of disease and maintain the quality. This trend towards ever bigger farms means that production costs and optimising efficiency have become key concepts in modern pig farming. In order to be able to optimise production results, pig farms have to aim for a high health status, so as to keep the costs of disease prevention under control. This can be done, for example, by putting Specific Pathogen Free sows into a farm or, more easily, by introducing synchronized group management systems and implementing a biosecurity control plan and better feed on the farm.
