The British Pig Executive has published full details of the work it has done to help pig producers improve pig production during the past year in its 2011–2012 Technical Report.
The report is an in-depth look at knowledge transfer and research and development activities which were designed to help producers improve physical pig performance, herd health and environmental management. “The sustainability of the pig industry in England hinges on production efficiency, and the key focus of the research and development activity is on helping to deliver a more cost-competitive industry,” said Derek Armstrong, British Pig Executive research and development chief.
The report includes practical on-farm solutions from the knowledge transfer team to provide ideas for other producers who are experiencing similar challenges. It also provides a single point of reference for university departments and commercial companies to see, at a glance, all the areas of research and development currently under way, and to spot potential opportunities to work with the British Pig Executive and contribute further knowledge to benefit the English pig industry.
