vision
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
core program areas14
Core program areas
  • More reliable and consistent protein and energy supply
  • Herd feed conversion efficiency
  • Functional pork products
  • Education and training
research investment process
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
to reduce feed costs
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)
subprogram 1a innovative grain production
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.
subprogram 1b quality assessment of feed ingredients
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.
subprogram 1c wider range of feed ingredients for use in pig diets
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.
to improve herd feed conversion
To improve herd feed conversion…
  • More control over feed intake
  • Increase metabolic efficiency
  • Improve health status
  • Raise reproductive efficiency
  • Enhance viability of breeding females
subprogram 2a innovative products and strategies for the measurement of feed intake
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.
subprogram 2b innovative products and strategies for the manipulation of feed intake
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.
slide25

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.
slide26
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.
the bottom line
The Bottom Line
  • Reduce COP from $2.05 to $ 1.50 per kg carcass weight.
slide32
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.
causes
Causes?
  • Genetics?
  • Wastage?
  • Low energy diets?
  • Light selling weights?
  • Reproduction
  • Poor health
  • Tell me?
performance indicators
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
slide40

Can we get there?…

$10/kg feed = $0.04/kg carcase

0.1 feed conversion = $0.04/kg carcase
