Video: Predictive Modeling Using Hogistics

Hogistics is a service that takes into account the information that you know about pigs today, and uses a model to predict their weights, and more importantly, their weight distributions. It considers variables like health and seasonality and answers “what if” questions concerning tactical initiatives such as adding fat to a diet or adding a new vaccine, in a risk-free environment.
