Abstract

This study examined the economic effects of applying controllable management factors for farrow-to-finish operations. Average producers in Kansas market 7 pigs/litter with an average feed conversion of 4.58. Improvement in 9 areas of management increased profits on 240 litters by $43,680. Each item appears small. However "Big Things" come from the sum of "Little Things".; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 11, 1982
