ARE WE STUCK WITH WHAT WE CAN DO TO LOWER FEED COSTS?
High feed costs have an enormous impact on profitability in the swine industry. If ingredient prices and energy costs are high, it can be difficult to reduce feed costs without compromising quality. So, the big question is: what can we do to lower feed costs? The good news is that a successful swine production operation can be maintained despite high feed costs with careful planning and management. In this course, you'll learn some of the strategies that can be used to mitigate the impact of high feed costs. These strategies include optimizing feed usage, reducing waste, exploring alternative feed ingredients, and understanding the economic scenario that led to that situation. This course is taught by Dr. Trey Kellner, Swine Nutritionist and Managing Partner of AMCV Nutritional Services.
