Total feed efficiency includes the whole production cycle of pork
TFE has improved over the years by reducing the input needs and maximizing outputs. A key aspect of TFE is reducing all forms of leakages on your farm. It is important to realize that leakages are present throughout the production cycle from birth of gilts to slaughter of fatteners. Improving the TFE of a farm or a production system involves assessing each sector identifying, measuring and controlling all aspects of the input and output equation.
