Pig Focus is an advanced whole herd monitoring system, based on weekly records, which includes a database of information on the production and management system, health status, genetics and feeding programme. Launched in 2006, following over two years of development and trials, Pig Focus is the result of a collaboration between Devenish Nutrition, Pork Chain Solutions and Garth Partnership. The key objective is to use our production and veterinary expertise to deliver a concise, simple and reliable assessment of the Key Performance Indicators on your unit for effective health and production control.
However, staff are often overwhelmed by the output from such systems and are unsure how historical information relates to day-to-day activities. They become distracted by detail, such as an increase in stillbirths, while missing the big picture, such as failing to achieve the correct number of services.
Vets and advisors often waste time searching for key performance indicators, or have to attempt to estimate them from limited data records, in order to help farms make rational business decisions.
PIG FOCUS allows vets and advisors to examine Key Performance Indicators calculated in a standard format, with the added benefit of cross-farm analysis using the powerful database.
