ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the yield of crops intended for pig feeds in Great Britain as of August 2007. The author states that six-row barleys for pig feed have provided his farm a good yield with the Amarena barn filler at over 10t/ha. In the author's opinion, the progress of the cereal industry is insignificant against the damage that the foot-and-mouth disease will do to the pig sector. It says that feed accounts for around 70% of production costs and cereals are facing a year-on-year increase of 80%.
