Pig Farming: Feeding

Duration: 1.5+ hours

Ruminants have four stomachs and are able to make use of a large amount of roughage in their diet. Examples of ruminants are cattle and sheep. Pigs are non-ruminants so their feeding is different to that of most farm animals. In this course, you will learn about the procedures used in the feeding of pigs, including energy requirements, nutritional ratios, protein and micro-nutrient requirements, feeding on pasture and more.
