production

Environment Welfare
Economics

Production efficiency is improving every year in terms of:


Piglets / sow / year (>30 is not a surprise anymore)
ADG / FE (Pietrain terminal boars)
Mortality rate in fattening (<3 %, PCV2 vaccines, management)
Challenges
Economics

Meat production is not compensated by means only of


census decrease
Prices are kept low for longer than expected
Challenges

Cost of production is more important than ever to stand


in the business
Food Safety

Focused on Salmonella control

- Reglamento (CE) nº 2160/2003 on salmonella control

and other zoonotic agents transmitted by food

Welfare

1. Mandatory on 2013
2. Differents options and not everyone ready
3. Strong implications on health and management
Challenges
New scenario for the sector where

High productive efficiency is required –costs control


Nutrition - feed additives (nutraceuticals) are key
High – end genetics are becoming usual (high-end
Challenges

requirements as well!)
Food safety ensurance is a must
Control of pollutant emmisions is of increasing
importance
Welfare regulations defines a new framework for
this all
PigCHAMP Pro Europa profile and proposal PigCHAMP is ready for those requirements
