The challenges facing the future of pig farming include the need to improve technical and financial performance even further, the requirement to achieve more transparency around the product and production method and the necessity to feed the growing world by making more efficient use of scarce raw materials. According to Gerard Weijer, Pig Industry Sales Manager at Nedap, these challenges make electronic individual animal identification an attractive option for the whole pig farming chain.
