Producing pork on a smaller footprint is possible, sustainable

55

Pork demand is growing especially in countries where herds have been decimated by ASF. Supply is short and so is farmland to initiate greenfield projects with sound biosecurity

In this podcast, John Carr offers a high-rise solution for pig farms. A multi-level pig building can integrate many components from breeding, nursery, and finishing.  It is equivalent to a large pig farm with a larger land surface area.

Dr Carr believes that this pig farm can offer higher biosecurity efficiency than a ground-level farm. More importantly, it addresses food supply for a residential area in a sustainable way.

Dr Carr is a well-known swine consultant in Asia, Australia, North America, Europe, and Africa. He specializes in maintaining pig health by promoting excellence in stockmanship and production practices.
