About the book
Organic animal production has increased rapidly in recent years to keep up with the increasing consumer demand for organic meats. There are many guidelines and restrictions on what should go into the feedstuffs of organically farmed animals, from which difficulties arise when trying to ensure a well-balanced, nutritious diet without the use of any supplements.
This second edition of Robert Blair's classic and bestselling book on the nutrition and feeding of organic pigs presents comprehensive advice that includes:
- formulating appropriate diets and integrating them into organic pig production systems;
- international standards of organic feeding;
- feed-related disease incidence in organic herds.
