WHAT MORE CAN PIG FOCUS DO FOR YOU?
Are your staff doing what you think they are doing?PIG FOCUS can generate compliance reports and charts on a whole range of aspects of breeding and feeding herd managementIn striving to optimise performance, priorities change and PIG FOCUS can therefore generate reports and charts on those Key Performance Indicators relevant to that unit at a particular point in time
Example 1 - Lactation feed intake compliance report
Example 2 - Feed budget compliance report
Batch farrowing reports
Special versions of Focusboard are available for 2-week, 3-week, and 5- week batch farrowing systemsThese reports follow each batch through the breeding production cycle from service to farrowing and weaningThe basic data is still entered each week and the system highlights the unplanned spread of activities across the weeks and therefore provides a useful monitor of batch integrityThe success of any batch system is dependent on good control of service numbers and the unique gilt forecasting feature provided by PIG FOCUS is a particularly useful management tool for batch production
As well as providing the principle production control function, PIG FOCUS is also a powerful database powered by Microsoft SQL ServerAs each unit is set-up on the PIG FOCUS system, a whole range of information including location, production system, housing type, genetic source, health status, vaccination protocol, etc. is entered into the databaseThis information can then be used to form the basis of special reports, cross-farm analysis and seasonal trends, etc.League tables of Key Performance Indicators, in which the identity of individual units is anonymous, provide further stimulus and interest for staff
Platform for What If? evaluation and decision making
PIG FOCUS can be linked to a comprehensive What If? model to allow advisors to assess and discuss the financial implications of capital investment, management changes or depopulation programmes.Information from PIG FOCUS can also be integrated with Management Accounting software to allow producers and their advisors to obtain a better understanding of Cost of Production.
