Cost of Production
Cost of production includes cost of feed, energy, medicine, management, administration, etc. with feed as the greatest component usually accounting for 70% of the total costs.
The choice of housing, biosecurity, genetics, nutrition and management has tremendous impact on the operation cost. Initial savings on investment in housing and technology are easily offset by higher feed and heating cost.
Poor biosecurity leads to disease and lower productivity which increases production costs. Similarly, genetics deliver a high output of pigs only if good management, appropriate housing and adequate nutrition is applied.
Therefore, Danish Farm Concept offers both a safe pig housing concept and professional management support by highly skilled pig farm managers as well as back office support from veterinarians and nutritionists while assuring low cost of production.
