Abstract

Objective: To describe a method to evaluate both the profitability and feasibility of potential investments in a pork-raising enterprise.

Design and procedure: Formulas are given to allow an economic analysis addressing both the feasibility and profitability of a project. Data from a hypothetical farm considering whether to adopt an all-in–all-out and a segregated early weaning scheme are used as examples to illustrate the formulas.

Implications: When considering whether to adopt a new technology, it is important to first calculate both the profitability and feasibility of the investment
