Timely strategies to reduce feed costs

83

The feed raw material market is currently volatile and unpredictable. The key to survival is to be knowledgeable about alternative ingredients and how to evaluate and manage them. However, it is important to keep the focus on the real issue: The cost to produce a kilogram of pork.

At this year’s Pig Feed Quality Conference, Dr Megan Edwards will lead the session on ‘Timely strategies to reduce feed costs’.

“We are going to look at alternative raw materials, alternative nutritional strategies, the value of functional feed additives and what drives up sow productivity,” she says.

Dr Megan is an animal nutrition consultant at Integral Nutrition, Singapore.
