Science Eyes Success with High-Tech Imagery

Author(s) : G. Geddes
Expertise : Meat Quality and Technical Services

There’s a lot of talk these days about enhancing the image of the pork industry in the public eye. From a science standpoint, however, it may be the use of cutting edge imagery that catches the eye of producers and plants seeking an advantage. While image might not be everything, high-tech imaging could be the next big thing for the pork industry in assessing meat and carcass quality and gathering valuable information on live animals.

Research on Soybean Meal Offers Food for Thought

Author(s) : G. Geddes
Expertise : Feeding and animal nutrition

Is boosting income or cutting costs the key to success? In pork production, it’s like choosing between food and water for survival: they’re both kind of important. Since the revenue side depends on market forces that are largely beyond your control, trimming expenses is a focal point for science and industry.

Finisher Nutrition a Growth Industry

Author(s) : G. Geddes
Expertise : Feeding and animal nutrition

As your pigs grow, so do your profits. Of course, nothing in the pork industry is that easy. Keeping your grower-finisher pigs well fed is critical to success, but high feed costs can quickly eat into your margins. So just as growing families try to stretch their dollars at the supermarket, research is helping producers make their feed dollars go farther with growing pigs.

Science Helps Hogs to the Finish(ing) Line

Author(s) : G. Geddes
Expertise : Feeding and animal nutrition

As important as nutrition may be for sows and piglets, if you don’t get your hog to market and sell it for the maximum profit, nothing else matters. So it should be no surprise that the care and feeding of growing-finishing pigs is a prime concern of producers and, by extension, of researchers.

Recipe for Sow Nutrition: Just Add Milk

Author(s) : G. Geddes
Expertise : Feeding and animal nutrition

Researchers understand that a strong beginning is essential to piglet development, and milk plays a huge role in sows starting their litters on the right hoof. No wonder then, that while science targets sow nutrition from a number of angles, maximizing sow milk yield continues to be a major focus of research.
