Pig farms data analysis
The month of the sow's birth affects the number of piglets born alive in the first farrowing.
We can predict a sow's production based on the number of piglets born alive at first farrowing. In addition, the best sows' performance will outdo the others' continuously.
We present the first results obtained by cross-matching data from different sources: production / reproduction data with data from feeding machines.
A new revolution is about to reach the swine sector, we are talking about new information management.
This article explains how the massive use of hormones helps synchronize heats and farrowings when workload scheduling, synchronization and production rates stability are priorities.
A strict schedule allows us to concentrate all the important events, and time periods where more attention/work is required, within the working days.
