Feeding organic pigs: a handbook of raw materials and recommendations for feeding practice

The project “Organic Farm Knowledge” has published a handbook, produced by Professor Sandra Edwards, School of Agriculture Food & Rural Development, University of Newcastle,  dedicated to raw materials and recommendations for pig feeding practices.

The formulation of a pigs diet has become extremely sophisticated, and accounts for 70-80% of the cost of pig production. Organic farming requires an integrated, whole-farm approach to food production which takes into account of sustainability, environmental and animal welfare considerations.
