RECENT PROGRESS IN SWINE BREEDING AND RAISING TECHNOLOGIES AND CUTTING-EDGE REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND PERSPECTIVES FOR THEIR USAGE IN SWINE

RECENT PROGRESS IN SWINE BREEDING AND RAISING TECHNOLOGIES AND CUTTING-EDGE REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND PERSPECTIVES FOR THEIR USAGE IN SWINE

Technological innovation and enhancement are the most important factors to improve production efficiency of livestock in Asia. Swine, in particular, is the first target of the innovative technologies to improve its growth trait and meat quality, as well as reproduction efficiency. Recently molecular marker-oriented breeding becomes enormously popular for the selection of various superior traits such as prolific, stress-free, better meat quality, and disease resistance.

Feed and nutrition management is another key factor to increase reproduction efficiency with minimizing disease infection in swine.

With increasing feed costs, it is difficult to provide swine with balanced diet for increased production efficiency and less-disease occurrence. Therefore it is imperative to enhance cost-effective feed formulation in terms of various indigenous and/or locally available low-cost feedstuffs. In addition, it is a matter of urgency to improve feed efficiency of newly formulated feeds.

The symposium was a healthy exchange of information for advanced research and practical technologies on swine production in the Asia- Pacific region. This seminar will also serve as a platform for future cooperation and technical exchange among scientists, policy makers, extension specialists, and various stakeholders to ensure safe and high quality production of swine products by Asian small-scale farmers.

Highlights and Recommendations:

•  Collaborate with private interest groups to work on cryopreservation and genebanking, benchmarking and profiling of native pigs and other technical areas in R&D of swine breeding and raising;

•  Set up collaborative research on conservation, maintenance and increase of swine genetic resources among affiliated countries like the Japan and Vietnam collaboration;

•  Establish an email network among all the speakers, moderators and organizers in order to continue the exchange of ideas and information on cutting-edge swine reproductive technologies and collaborative research on the conservation, maintenance and increase of swine genetic resources; and

•  Strategize ways on how to encourage the younger generation to be interested in swine breeding and raising;
