Information on pig feeding is fragmented: it is important to have comprehensive and complete technical guides.
This technical booklet summarizes the recommendations and knowledge from four research projects.
The technical booklet "Feeding pigs in organic farming" is intended for farmers and advisors. It is based on the results of four research projects and provides a synthesis of information on e.g. the regulations concerning the feeding of organic pigs, feeding management and the needs of animals according to their physiological stage. Furthermore, it includes information on the nutritive value of organic raw materials, examples of diet formulation and expected performances, the use of feedstuff and its manufacturing on the farm. This document has been produced specifically for organic farming but may be useful for all pig farmers. It can be used regardless of a farm's location.
