dc.description.abstract <p>I have a couple of simple messages. The fIrst is that the pigs are up to it in terms of outdoor production. There are questions as to whether today's pigs-· given the modem genetics that have for the most part been designed for intensive indoor production-are up to outdoor production. The answer to that seems to be yes. Second, in outdoor production, just as in indoor production, sloppy management leads to farm sales. This is especially tied to attention to details, the essence of sound management. Attention to detail is also important with respect to equipment design. We know that one farrowing crate is not the same as another farrowing crate, and one nursery feeder is not the same as another nursery feeder. It turns out that one farrowing hut for outdoor production is not the same as another farrowing hut, and the differences can be quite dramatic. So these two messages are the important, "take-home" ones.</p>
