There were lively discussions during the meeting on the possibility to use entire males as an alternative to surgical castration in the Romanian pork production chains. Dr. I. Ladosi clearly presented the challenges for the Romanian pork industry, some of them real difficulties that will have to be adressed. Other issues presented during his talk are no real challenge, underlying the existing gap between the available knowledge and the perception by chain actors. The particular case of local breeds was also extensively discussed between participants.
