Welcome to Agriness blog! Here you’ll find content specially prepared for the industry, bringing guidelines, methods and information on innovation, technology and management (business, people and information).
Today’s pig farming can no longer be based solely on experience or intuition. There are a number of resources ensuring better choices for a farm´s future, for example the Award for The Best Swine Producer Agriness.
Monitoring all steps of all production processes can seem very complicated, even for the most experienced managers. The Agriness P+1 method shows that in pig farming there is a critical flow of processes that determine whether the farmer will be able to deliver enough animals at the end of each period. The monitoring and homogeneity of these processes, or key points of production, have a direct – and positive – impact harnessing the maximum productive potential and ideal delivery.
Any farm can harness the maximum production potential that its facilities and structure allow, but many farms fail to do so. In order to reach this potential, you have to look at the whole production system, relating farm records to the production process. But where to start?
The production capacity of a farm is calculated taking into account aspects regarding animal performance and economy. The improvements that are intended to make the most of this capacity should focus on one of the most important stages of the business: delivering animals.
The Leadership Experience focuses in the development of leaders through self-knowledge, engagement and thought diversity as a source of innovation.
The Agriness Way, a process created to encourage our people, began with the Leadership Experience, an initiative of Agriness University focused on promoting self-knowledge, engagement and diversity of thought for leadership development. A special partnership is supporting Agriness in this journey.
Keitiline Viacava, Ph.D., DM.Lab, professor, researcher and consultant in management cognition, who worked for 2 years as a cognitive neuroscientist affiliated to the Department of Neurology at Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.), institution with which Keitiline declares to have the privilege and honor to keep a connection until today. Her job is to help leaders transform ideas into action based on an understanding of how the mind works, by promoting experimentation, risk taking and diversity of thought as a source of innovation.
A common mistake made by managers and team is to mistake motivation for engagement. Because motivation is intrinsic, it is individual.
Accelerators are indirectly present around us more than we think. In Brazil, newer and less prominent, accelerators are also resulting in success cases.
In order to make piglets production an increasingly profitable business, increasing productivity should be a continuous target of farms.
In industry, one of the indicators of productivity is the capacity usage level installed – number of items that the machines are capable of producing.
The question is, data can be transformed into quality information, which contributes effectively to identify problems and make decisions?
PENSAMENTO+1 has the so-called optimal delivery of its fundamental concepts, proposing broader view of the results of the farm.
Identify productivity problems requires leaving aside the more operational view of the farm – the farm needs to be analyzed thoroughly.
One of the main concerns of managers with weekly meetings is wasting time. After all, everybody has always “other fish to fry”.
