I have done a case-study about building a new stable for slaughter pigs at a farm close to Kalmar. The farm is able to supply the breeding with cereals and it has enough area to spread the manure on. The most important factors to gain profit, is the cost for building the stable, the price of the feeding-stuff and the growth of the pigs. The discount from the slaughter-house was less important than I thought from the beginning, and it's a factor that is hard to influence. With the new production of slaughter-pig and cattle that already exist on the farm, the farm will get a well-functioned rotation of crops with lye and autumn rape as interruption-crop. And the farm would be self-supporting of cereals and could take care of the manure at the own area. That should give the impact which the purchase of nitrogen-manure can decrease with 50 570 SEK per year. The need of work should increase with 1 625 hours per year, 75 percent of a full-timeduty. The impact of that should be that two people will be able to get their income from the company. The best result appears if the cost of building the stable is 4000 SEK per place of slaughter pig and a cost of fodder at 1, 36 SEK per kilo. The result will then become 282 253 SEK to work and profit.
