Labour time requirement in pig husbandry



Labour time requirement in pig husbandry



Farm work science facing the challenges of the XXI century Proceedings XXIX CIOSTA GIGR V Congress, Krakow, Poland, 25-27 June 2001: 138-143



A research on the labour time requirement in pig husbandry was conducted in 4 farms with sizes ranging from 110 to 175 sows. Results showed an average labour requirement for breeding (including weaners) on the 4 farms of 14.5 h/sow/year. The largest possible labour saving in relation with the method used can be realized by installing an automatic feeding installation.
