Taking into account the growing competition for feed resources connected among others with the decline in arable land in many traditionally important agricultural regions, and rapid expanding of other groups of feed consumers: human food complex, poultry sector, biofuels sector, etc., it is necessary to make swine industry more efficient and competitive in the global protein production sector.

Improvement of feed conversion rate (FCR) in farm animals covers a broad range of scientific disciplines including: nutrition, genetics, veterinary medicine, physiology, feed processing, technology of animal production, welfare, management and many others.
