Resources & Tools to Maximize Genetic Potential
Many new farm employees come to a pig farm with little, if any, livestock experience. They may not have the context to understand why tasks should be completed or how they should be completed to maximize genetic potential.
Below are resources to supplement current on-farm training programs for new or existing employees on PIC management best practices. These resources support on-farm employees in both farrowing and wean-to-finish farms.
It’s important to provide tools in multiple formats to meet the learning needs of employees. We’ve broken down PIC management best practices into videos, interactive tools and short articles for easier understanding. GrowQuest and Reproduction Resource Center interactive digital tools are useful for employees to see how each task connects to the big picture, why a task is important, and how each task impacts animals. Videos visually explain how to execute tasks with ease.
Share these resources with your employees to help them better implement management practices to drive efficiency and performance on your farm.
