An Updated Economic Assessment of New Swine Gestation Facility Investment

The overriding objective of this study is to conduct, within the limitations of current knowledge, an economic analysis of investing in new gestation housing facilities for a farrow to wean operation. There is still much that is not known about increasing the square feet per sow in group housing. This holds at least as much for the costs as it does for the productivity impacts. Hence, the assessment to be presented here is more demonstrative than definitive. Still, using available data, the analysis employs a detailed and transparent method to assess new facility investment alternatives.
