Pork Journal covers topics of vital interest to the pig industry such as feed, biosecurity, eating quality and consistency of pork, plus the improvement of profitability and production efficiency throughout the industry.
Australian pig farmers have to compete in a global market and the industry is constantly subject to pressure from imports in the processed sector and if market conditions are good it benefits from exports into key markets including Singapore and NZ.
Pressures on feed raw materials as Asian economies grow and crops being diverted to ethanol production are a concern for the industry as these pressures drive up feed costs.
Our editorial pages regularly feature growers who have found innovative solutions to some of the many challenges facing the pig farming industry in our region.
We also publish scientific papers and the results of research from both local and overseas sources.
