Fattening Pigs

Duration: 2 hours

Once piglets have been weaned and are being fattened for pork or bacon production, there are two ways of feeding them - either ad lib. or by rationing. The system the farmer uses will depend on the market that he is supplying. Many farmers supplying pigs for the production of quality pork and bacon have to comply with very exact grading standards in their countries. In this course, you'll learn about the management of husbandry operations associated with farming pigs for slaughter. Includes material on feeding spaces, frequency, and wet vs dry feed.
