This is a new series of episodes envisioned by Provimi and Swine it, where we will have bonus episodes in a roundtable format with experts of the global swine industry tackling subjects that can influence the producer’s bottom line.

On this first episode, I chatted with Dr Chad Pilcher and Mark Hulsebus, both from Provimi, about pig production in times of economic uncertainty.

Here are the highlights:

• COVID-19 situation and shifts among pig producers.

• Thoughts on managing a pork production business under economic uncertainty.

• The biggest aspects producers should consider right now from a nutrition standpoint.

• Overview on managing pig growth if/when packing plants reduce the number of shifts.

• Tips on maintaining lean operations and having cash reserves.

• Formulating for maximum profit versus minimum cost per kg of gain.
