This tool is created for pig farmers who want to use organic feedstuffs other than soybean, because a big part of soybeans is genetically modified and the risk of cross contamination is high.
The Italian Ministry of Agriculture finances the Council for Agricultural Research and Analysis of Agricultural Economics (CREA) to investigate solutions for organic nutrition. CREA created a manual with existing and new information about organic feedstuffs.
The manual is a list of information about characteristics and utilization of main feedstuffs for pigs. For each feed there are summarised agronomic information, nutritional values of single feeds in the table, and potential uses and limitation of each ingredient in a ration.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Manual for easy reference for pig rations and useful to revise ingredients of the ration thanks to feed nutritional table.
What problem does the tool address?:Due to the risk of cross contamination between genetically modified soybeans and organic ones, it is necessary to find different protein sources to use as feedstuffs in organic farming.
What solution does the tool offer?:This manual helps farmers to use other feedstuffs than soybeans.
