Fluctuations in the grain and pork markets strongly influence the profitability of the piggery business. Feed efficiency is not only the key parameter of profitability, but also for the sustainability of grains and proteins use on this planet. Better feed efficiency means better nutrient digestibility, gut health and less manure produced.

Many factors such as management, housing, gender, genetics and nutrition influence feed efficiency.
