How 18 kg of starter compound feed can dramatically change the situation on the farm.
Maturity (age of 100 kg live weight) is one of the most important indicators in industrial pig production. Its importance is that with age, feed and meat conversion rates deteriorate, and the sooner the animal reaches the slaughter condition, the better the economy of the process will be.
Studying the breeding programs of different companies, we see with the naked eye that British pigs are paying a lot of attention to growth energy. And that is logical - because in the country it is forbidden castration of donkeys, and the donkey, who has reached puberty, can already have a characteristic smell of meat, so pig fattening in Britain occurs up to 5-5,5 months of age. The main selection indicators in the selection of terminal boars were: appetite - the ability of the animal to consume and digest a large number of feeds, as well as the age of reaching 40 kg live weight - growth energy in the starter period.
