Abstract

This report evaluates the economic costs of production and profits for energy-restricted and conventional gilt development programs. Production and performance data and input and output prices were used to construct enterprise budgets for both groups. Results indicate that restricting feed intake during gilt development lowered breakeven selling prices for market pigs by an average of $0.17/cwt for two prolific maternal lines through their first four parities.
