Abstract:
The need to develop feeding strategies for organic pig husbandry is discussed. Successful performance of the farming system can only be achieved if the production process is optimised and controlled and essential inputs are available. When monogastric livestock such as pigs are integrated into an organic farming system, some nutritional inputs may be scarce. In the nutrition of organic pigs, two areas might be identified as the most important challenges: (1) balancing the supply and requirements of essential amino acids without relying too much on external feedstuffs and (2) developing and implementing nutritional concepts which help to improve animal health status.
