Technical support for wean-to-finish pigs
When pigs enter the wean-to-finish barn, the goal is to get them to market as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. The PIC wean-to-finish team breaks the wean-to-finish process into four focus areas: quality weaned pig, health, nutrition and marketing strategy. The team has developed tools and resources to support you during every turn, including the PIC wean-to-finish manual in English and Spanish.

Nutrition is one of the essential components to realizing swine genetic potential. The PIC nutrition team is committed to helping you find and deliver the best-cost nutritional support for your commercial pork production system to reach your goals.
