Pig industry successes in live weight gain, FCR and total production are presented as “great strides in productivity” in the newly published AHDB Pork yearbook.
Including a review of the first full delivery year of the ‘Going for Growth’ strategy, and covering the business plan for its continued delivery in 2015-16, the yearbook was unveiled by AHDB Pork director, Mick Sloyan, as showing what is being done to “develop the AHDB Pork mission of helping English pig production and processing businesses become more competitive and profitable”.
“It shows the improvements that have been made across the industry, including a 15g improvement in daily live weight gain and an improvement in FCR of 0.11,” he said.
“The industry has already made great strides in productivity and the work to improve still further must continue. We are now producing more pork than at any time since 2000.”
Copies of the yearbook are available on the AHDB Pork website
