In this episode of Feedstuffs Precision Pork, host Patrick Duerksen, Commercial Director for Cargill, is joined by Cargill nutritionists Chad Pilcher and Chris Parks to talk feed conversion and profitability. They kick off with a discussion on how best to roll up feed conversion and set as a priority that of saving money or making money.  


How then does one set a feed conversion goal for a hog operation based on economic conditions, energy costs and other factors? What about variation within an operation? What needs to be considered there? Can feed variation be a factor as well when it comes to feed conversion? These are all questions that are addressed.
