The National Pork Board has compiled a web-based resource for pork producers containing management tips and resources from pork industry and university experts. Topics include information on reducing feed costs and increasing production efficiencies. The information can be found at http://www.porkgateway.com/html/spotlight_images/PracticalIdeastoAddressHighFeedandProductionCosts.pdf.
In addition to the tips offered, most subjects include links to web sites that offer additional information.
Small savings in several areas has potential to produce significant gains. However, the document cautions, producers should keep in mind that decreasing feed and production costs is very complex and should be considered carefully.
