The latest Key Performance Indicator results for the 12 months to December 2010 reflect the challenges the industry faced with a long, warm summer sandwiched by severely cold weather at the start and end of the year.

Breeding Units

One observation is that in general the top third of producers increased the gap between themselves and the average producer. For example, for indoor breeding herds, the top third produced three per cent more pigs per sow per year at 26.4 pigs while the average producer improved by one per cent to 23.0 pigs. In outdoor herds pre-weaning mortality declined three per cent for top third producers although the average producer mortality increased four per cent.

Rearing and Finishing Units

Daily liveweight gains were notably lower in 2010 compared with a year earlier. Top third producers achieved 676g per day compared with 721g in 2009. The above just encapsulates a few snippets from all the information available. If you would like to view the results please visit the BPEX website at the link below.
