Producing pigs profitably is an ever increasing challenge, especially in such a volatile yet regulated environment. The three principle areas of managing raw material price volatility, minimising the costs of manure disposal and maintaining optimal health status and uniformity have been identified as having the greatest potential to improve the profitability of the producer.
Focusing on these main challenges, a new website www.pigcompass.com has been developed by Danisco Animal Nutrition, and launched at World Pork Expo, June 2012, to help producers successfully navigate issues arising from such challenges.
Gwendolyn Jones, swine technical services manager for Danisco Animal Nutrition says; “Our goal is to help pig farmers stay on course for profitable pig production in a sustainable way. The idea for the new website was borne from a decision to focus our efforts on providing healthy nutrition solutions to the key challenges encountered in the pig industry. The desire to investigate better ways of overcoming the industry’s challenges drives our innovation processes and improves the service that we can provide to pig producers."
