The profit equation

The Profit Equation

  • PROFIT = PRICE – COP ((FeedPrice x HFC ) +(Other costs) ) x Volume (pigs sold x weight)

Improving efficiency and cost of production

HFC

  • Currently averages 4.2 on a carcass weight basis for Australia (APL Pig Annual 2004).

  • USA average closer to 3.7

  • Rather scary when feed costs 27 cents/kg.


Causes

Causes?

  • Genetics?

  • Wastage?

  • Poor health ?

  • Low energy diets?

  • Light selling weights?

  • Reproduction

  • Tell me?


Effects of dietary energy fat

Effects of dietary energy -Fat

  • Potential to get added effect on feed efficiency

  • Reduce total feed delivered

  • Enhance performance in commercial situations

  • Reduce grain usage

  • Flexibility


Australian information

Australian Information

  • Results of experiment with boars and gilts reported by Henman etal in 1999.

  • Five levels of DE (calculated) ranging from 12.0 to 15.2 MJ/kg.

  • Animals housed in groups of 10 in commercial-type barn.

  • Duration of 42 days starting at 63 kg.


Effects of de on growth rate g d of pigs over 42 days starting at 60 kg

Effects of DE on growth rate (g/d) of pigs over 42 days starting at 60 kg.


Effects of dietary de mj kg on carcass weight kg

Effects of dietary DE (MJ/kg) on carcass weight (kg)


Effects of dietary de on feed gain

Effects of dietary DE on feed: gain


Effects of dietary de on carcass feed gain

Effects of dietary DE on carcass feed: gain


Effects of genetics

Effects of genetics

  • Comparison of gilts from two genetic lines.

  • Results from the USA.

  • Pigs compared on the same diets in the same facility.

Improving feed efficiency

Improving Feed Efficiency

  • We haven’t begun to get serious about FE?

  • Potential to dramatically reduce feed usage if willing to try different approaches.

  • Need to understand the constraints and some may be inherent in our animals and systems.

  • An exciting area, I look forward to working on with our partners and Australian producers.
