2030 Compost Special
Advanced Composting Technologies (ACT) has worked with integrators, producers, and the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) for more than 15 years developing a cost-effective mortality composting solution. This two-step process starts by mechanically pre-processing the carcasses while thoroughly mixing them with carbon material and “hot compost”. This homogenous mixture is then loaded into a forced aerated bin that optimizes and accelerates the whole composting process, unlike anything else in the marketplace. This proven innovative process offers the producer a simple cost-effective system that accommodates spikes in mortality, consistently kills pathogens, and produces a nutrient rich end-product. To learn how this innovative process can help solve your on-farm mortality disposal issues, visit us at the Illinois Pork Expo; visit our website: www.advancedcomposting.com; contact us at 515-214-4721.

Pork Avenue Training Portal has launched its Leadership Development training series. The Leadership Development series empowers managers to understand the bottom line and inspire their staffs to offer the best pig care. Each lesson in this series helps sow and wean-to-market managers better know how to interpret numbers, how to understand financials, and how to instill the vision in others to do the right thing for the pig each day. The first lesson in the series is NIPs and Elevated Returns which guides learners through the process of decreasing non-productive days and NIPs, as well as addressing elevated returns to estrus at 42 days post-wean. This lesson develops skills in sow and wean-to-market managers to reduce the financial costs associated with NIPs and non-productive days.

The Haven is a semi-enclosed “brood heater”, a microclimate for piglets that enables them to thrive in an environment suited to their needs while also preventing energy losses through waste heat released into the ambient environment where it irritates the sow. The Haven will also provide, through precise administration of UV light, a supplementation vector for vitamin D that piglets cannot currently receive in any other way.
Future versions will enable tracking of piglet growth and health outcomes as well as consolidation of data from sow cards and veterinary care, enabling producers to close the feedback loop and facilitating greater automation of the pork production process.
