Economical assessment of the alternatives for surgical castration: a comparison of the gross margin per pig

    Onderzoeksoutput: Bijdrage aan tijdschriftAbstract van een congres in een tijdschriftpeer review

    Uittreksel

    In recent years, the pig industry has been facing very difficult economic conditions. Contemporary intensive pig production is characterized by small margins between costs and revenues. As a result, small adjustments or anomalies in management, even with slight changes in revenues and costs, can significantly affect the economic performance of the pig farm. Among many aspects of managing the fattening farm or the farrow-to-finish farm, the decision to raise entire males (EM), immunocastrates (IC) or barrows (BA), can make an important difference in the technical and economic performance of the farm.
