  12. $81.4 million in funding

  13. Vision A Cooperative Research Centre to enhance the INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS of the Australian pork industry by providing and adopting NEW and NOVEL technologies that: • Reduce FEED COSTS; • Improve HERD FEED CONVERSION EFFICIENCY, and; • Enhance the capacity to COST-EFFECTIVELY produce HEALTHY PORK PRODUCTS targeted at niche markets in Australia and overseas

  14. Core program areas • More reliable and consistent protein and energy supply • Herd feed conversion efficiency • Functional pork products • Education and training

  15. Research Investment Process • Pork CRC Ltd is a company with clear corporate objectives • Not a public sector funding body • Outcomes must be achieved – research will be commissioned to achieve these outcomes as efficiently as possible

  16. Program Funding

  17. To reduce feed costs… • Dedicated feed grains (barley, triticale) • Local supply • Less variability in price and supply • Enhanced utilisation • Greater capacity to measure nutrient content • Wider choice of ingredients (legumes, co-products)

  18. Subprogram 1a: Innovative grain production • Commercial quantities of cereals that can grow closer to pig producing regions, that have a high yield, cost-effective agronomy and acceptable nutritional characteristics for pigs. • Commercial quantities of pulses (peas, lupins, beans) that can grow closer to pig producing regions, that have a high yield and cost-effective agronomy.

  19. Subprogram 1b: Quality assessment of feed ingredients • Adopt, implement, enhance and maintain NIRS calibrations for nutritional quality of cereals developed within the Premium Grains for Livestock Program. • A wider range of rapid and objective analytical methods for the nutritional quality of feed ingredients. • Processing and interventions to increase nutrient yield from target grains.

  20. Subprogram 1c: Wider range of feed ingredients for use in pig diets • Identification and development of new and novel protein and energy sources based on co-products and/or traditional sources • Assessment of nutritional potential of candidate protein and energy sources • Implementation of non-traditional and alternative protein and energy production.

  21. Program 1-More and better grains/enhancing nutrient availability

  22. To improve herd feed conversion… • More control over feed intake • Increase metabolic efficiency • Improve health status • Raise reproductive efficiency • Enhance viability of breeding females

  23. Subprogram 2a: Innovative products and strategies for the measurement of feed intake. • A method for the practical and continuous measurement of feed disappearance in groups (ie a pen of pigs at least daily). • A method for practical and continuous measurement of feed wastage within groups. • Novel methods for the measurement of individual feed intake within a group. • Prediction of disease onset through the application of feed intake measurements.

  24. Subprogram 2b: Innovative products and strategies for the manipulation of feed intake. • Novel molecules (eg. cytokines) and feed ingredients (eg. grains, inherent plant compounds, plant extracts) that can be used to manipulate feed intake. • Elimination of post-weaning growth check and promotion of gut development through stimulation of feed intake. • Improved carcase quality through manipulation of feed intake in growing pigs.

  25. Subprogram 2c: Alternative therapies, products or strategies to improve pig production efficiency and reduce mortality of all growth phases. • Nutritional, genetic, immunological and management solutions for the control and/or reduction of disease and mortality as an adjunct or alternative to existing medication programs in all growth phases. • Development of nutritional strategies and further enhancement of metabolic modifiers and their mode of application (eg. Paylean, pST) to improve lean tissue deposition. • Implement novel genetic and reproductive tools and technologies to enhance production efficiency.

  26. Subprogram 2d: Extend and enhance the productive life of the breeding female through novel management and system design. • Nutritional, genetic and management strategies to improve the productive capacity of the gilt over her lifetime. • Intervention strategies to reduce seasonal infertility. • Practical system for the prediction of the time of ovulation.

  27. Program-2 Improving HFC

  28. Program 3 –Improved market outcomes

  29. The Bottom Line • Reduce COP from $2.05 to $ 1.50 per kg carcass weight.

  30. Relative business indicators

  31. Comparative costs in USA dollars per kg carcass weight

  32. HFC • Currently averages 4.2 on a carcass weight basis for Australia (APL Pig check 2004). • USA average closer to 3.7 • Rather scary when feed costs 27 cents/kg.

  33. Causes? • Genetics? • Wastage? • Low energy diets? • Light selling weights? • Reproduction • Poor health • Tell me?

  34. Shorter term technical targets and changes for Australia and their potential impacts.

  35. Potential improvement in profit and flexibility

  36. My R&D priorities for the Australian Industry (all linked with training/education)

  37. Programs/outcomes continued

  38. Chances of success

  39. Performance indicators… • Reduction in on-farm cost of production from $2.05/kg carcase to $1.50/kg carcase (2004 currency values) • Capture of new niche markets for value added pork products by 2012

  40. Can we get there?… $10/kg feed = $0.04/kg carcase 0.1 feed conversion = $0.04/kg carcase Program 1a,b,c Local supply ($0.12), more accurate diet formulation ($0.04), greater energy yield ($0.08), alternative ingredients ($0.12) $0.36 Program 2 a,b Reduced feed wastage ($0.06), strategic medication($0.04), better summer growth ($0.05), reduced autumn fat ($0.03), reduced weaning growth check ($0.05) $0.22 Program 2 c,d Reduced medication costs ($0.02), improved growth and feed conversion ($0.15), increased lifetime productivity ($0.07), reduced seasonal infertility ($0.05), measurement of ovulation time ($0.03) $0.32

  41. QAF - Realisation of outcomes… • 50% increase in production • 500% increase in Japanese exports • 10% reduction in imports • 500 extra regional jobs

  42. Industrial, Commercial and Economic Benefits of the Pork CRC

  43. Industrial • Increased exports • Increased domestic supply • Reduced impact from drought, exchange rate fluctuations and imports • Industry expansion • Job creation • Improved return on existing investment • Strengthened rural sector

  44. Comparative growth…

  45. Growth potential of key Asian pork markets (2004-2012) Australia’s 2003 exports = 62,000t worth $221m (FAPRI, 2003)

  46. Commercial • Product/process focussed R&D programme • High commercial relevance • Applications extend beyond the pork industry • Plant varieties • Measurement of ovulation • Measurement of feed intake • Delivery of functional nutrients

  47. Economic • Conservative estimate of economic benefit • $AUD235 million per annum • Additional economic benefits: • Grains industry • Other livestock industries • Commercialisation of products • Health/nutrition sectors

  48. Key strengths… • Most consumed meat in the world • Capacity for growth • Bid based on industry need • Cohesive industry • Competitors collaborating • Contributes to three national research priorities • Component of industry restructure plan • Significant investment in the CRC ($11.2 million) at a time of poor returns

  49. Conclusions • Pork CRC operational and ready to deliver • Strong support from government and industry • Outcomes will have a significant impact on the competitiveness of the Australian pork industry
