By careful observation and explanation of the pig farm itself, in addition to studying the performance data of the farm in question, several important points regarding the effi-ciency and profitability of the pig production could be identified. The farmers themselves were aware of some of the problems, but were grateful to be told about less obvious problems. A lot could be learned from the process, both for the farmers and me. It could be concluded that the results of the farm are good in average but there is always room for improvement. The farmers will look into the problems and try to improve where it is possible, and it will be interesting to look at their numbers again in a year or two.
