More pork is consumed than any other meat in the world today making swine or pig farming one of the more important food production sectors in the world. Pig farming involves various stages beginning with breeding sows, followed by piglets, weaner and finally growing pigs, all of which requires duration of 5 to 6 months. The total production of pork was more than 110 million metric tons in 2019, requiring a feed input of more than 270 million metric tonnes. Feeding is applied in every stage of pig farming except the piglet stage.
Cost management, disease prevention and bio-security play an important role in ensuring the continued sustainability of pig farming and will be the main challenge for the industry to move forward. Diarrhea is one of the most common challenge in pig farming, especially in the piglet stage and also to a lesser extent, the weaner and grower stages.
Maintaining sow body condition and health is also essential criteria to farmers to ensure piglet quality and good reproductive performance for profit optimization.
