The annual Pig Conferences are the main event of the agri benchmark Pig activities.

The agri benchmark network is a global initiative aimed at improving the competitiveness and sustainability of pig production systems worldwide. The network brings together experts, researchers, and stakeholders from various countries to exchange knowledge, data, and experiences regarding agricultural practices, technologies, and policies.

At the core of the agri benchmark network are its conferences, which serve as crucial platforms for participants to discuss key issues, share best practices, and collaborate on research projects. These conferences typically feature presentations, workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, providing attendees with valuable insights into the latest developments in pig economics, management, and technology.

One significant aspect of these conferences is their focus on benchmarking. Benchmarking involves comparing the performance and efficiency of agricultural enterprises across different regions and countries. By analyzing data and metrics such as production costs, yields, and profitability, participants can identify strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvement within their own operations. This comparative analysis helps inform decision-making processes and enables participants to adopt strategies that enhance their competitiveness and sustainability.

Moreover, the conferences facilitate knowledge exchange and capacity building among participants. Farmers, researchers, policymakers, and industry professionals have the opportunity to learn from each other's experiences, innovative practices, and research findings. This collaborative environment fosters a culture of continuous learning and improvement within the agricultural sector.

Furthermore, the conferences play a crucial role in shaping agricultural policy and innovation agendas at both national and international levels. Insights gained from the discussions and research presented at these events can inform policy decisions, research priorities, and investment strategies aimed at promoting agricultural development, food security, and environmental sustainability.

Overall, the conferences organized by the agri benchmark network are instrumental in promoting collaboration, innovation, and knowledge sharing within the global agricultural community. By bringing together stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and regions, these events contribute to the advancement of sustainable and competitive agricultural production systems worldwide.

In the Pig Conferences, results of our benchmark activities are presented, specific topics are addressed in plenary sessions or workshops, and the next steps in the Network are discussed and decided commonly by the partners.

The programme is complemented by pre-conference trainings, field trips to farms and agri-business companies and invited speaker presentations.
