It's no secret, we know that market barrows perform better than gilts. But should we look at this challenge as a cost of business or revenue opportunity? A recent KSU published paper has economically quantified the Gilt Gap at an estimated -$3.60/gilt for producers and -$5.00/gilt for integrators compared to barrows. Hear from two experts – Dr. Steve Pollmann, nutritionist and industry consultant, and Dr. Ben Bohrer, OSU Meat Scientist, discuss how IMPROVEST® (gonadotropin releasing factor analog-diphtheria toxoid conjugate) 0.2 mg/mL, now approved for temporarily suppressing estrus in gilts, can help the industry produce market gilts that perform more like barrows.
