What do you develop in your team: motivation or engagement?

Honestly, what keeps you awake at night as a farm manager or owner regarding people? Do you need to make changes, but realize that people are not engaged? Or have you hired an employee you thought was wonderful and one week later he is delivering less than he should? The answer to these questions boil […]

Accelerators: how can they help agribusiness take off?

The subject of this post may be unknown or sound curious to those working in agriculture, since the term accelerator is not yet a common term in our day-to-day life. However, accelerators are indirectly present around us more than we think. WhatsApp, Airbnb and Uber are some of the world companies that had their success […]

Do you know the maximum number of piglets your farm may potentially produce?

Pig farmers know that you need more than performance data to have an accurate view of the farm to support your business decisions. You need a global and systemic view of pig production considering the installed capacity of the farm, instead of focusing on individual processes.

How many piglets do sows produce throughout their lives?

In order to make pig production an increasingly profitable business, increasing productivity should be a continuous target of farms. Just like an industry is able to define the installed capacity of a plant – measuring the amount of products their equipment is able to manufacture – farms can (and should!) forecast how many piglets their […]

Outputs lower than installed capacity mean that the resources are underutilized, resulting in profitability losses. This is called idle capacity. In pig production, idle capacity may also be […]

The question is: how can all these data be turned into quality information that can effectively contribute to […]

Ideal delivery in pig production: satisfied customers and profitable farms

Customer satisfaction is the main goal of every business. After all, satisfied customers are loyal customers. This also applies to pig production. Excellence in delivery is as important as excellence in production, that is, to ensure that the demand is supplied as best as possible. Therefore, ideal delivery is one of the essential concepts of […]

Diagnosis: Do you know how to identify productivity issues on your farm?

Why am I not able to produce more? Why my business is not more profitable? All pig producers have asked these questions at least once. We believe the answers are in how farmers consider their operations. Identifying problems means you need to stop looking at individual operational details, such as mating, weaning, farrowing, feeding, and […]

Weekly meetings: the secret of good results

Quick question: have you gathered your team this week to assess production and to find solutions for the problems in your farm? If your answer is yes, congratulations! You are part of a still small group of pig farmers that started changing a critical cultural issue: the lack of time dedicated to discuss management. We […]
