FEED SERIES WEBINAR
FEED EXCELLENCE: UTILIZATION & EFFICIENCY
Feed costs are the highest costs on a pig farm. Nowadays with the increasing cost of ingredients worldwide, the pressure on feed costs will only increase further.
It is therefore important to optimize all ins and outs in feed supply, feed distribution, feed utilization and feed efficiency to control production costs. In this seminar, three main trends in animal feed sector that will shape livestock production were elaborated by Ms Pan Chenjun of RaboBank. It was also discussed how the country of origin has an impact on the feed costs and what can be done to keep a check on it.
