The farm produces F1 superior gilts, so I had the opportunity to learn how to treat such gilts. Apart from the practical part, we have also covered theoretical part where we found out more about calculating the capacity, forming of optimal groups, how to analyze a farm from the economic point of view in terms of incomes and expenses, work with specialized software for data registration which can later be used to analyze data and improve overall results.
EDUFARM is absolutely perfect. Over a short period of time, I have acquired advance knowledge about feeding, breeding technology and health protection of pigs. Such training it necessary for every person who wishes to engage in animal farming at the high level.
After only two weeks at the farrowing room, I learnt how to castrate by myself, which will bring progress and savings at our family farm. As soon as I have more time available, I will attend other courses as well.
I came here to learn the practical application, because the theory is one thing, and practice is something completely different. I am very satisfied with the farm, accommodation and the team of lecturers. Over a short period of time, I have learnt many things: From the techniques to discover estrus, to take semen from the boar, preparation of the semen, making of doses... I managed to acquire routine in activities I have never seen during my faculty education.
