Value of Creep Feed

Creep feeding pigs is one of several ways to reduce overall feed costs, discussed by nutritionist Dr Steve Jagger from ABAgri during BPEX’s latest live online workshop.

Steve said: “Starter feed for pre-weaning piglets is small proportion of all feed costs at 4% and the improved growth post-weaning means it is well worth it. One trial showed that piglets eating 4.55kg each of starter feed are worth £1.21 more per pig, as margin over feed, than piglets eating just 3.89kg each.”
