Protein nutrition of the pig is concerned primarily with supplying the amino acid requirements for fast, efficient growth and development of a lean carcass. This technical guide outlines the most common limiting amino acids, common feed sources and their protein and amino acid profile, as well as potential plant and animal-based protein sources, including oilseeds, legumes, forage legumes, cereals and others.
Several options are available to fulfil the requirement of 100% ingredients of locally produced organic origin in organic pig concentrate diets. However, the range of options varies with the different climatic conditions throughout Europe with more limited options in the northern areas than in the south.
This tool is targeted for organic pig farmers in Europe, but parts are also relevant for non-European farmers.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn about organic feed sources which fulfil pig’s amino acid needs.
What problem does the tool address?:The main dietary challenge for pig producers is ensuring that feed fulfils the protein and amino acid profile requirements of pigs. This is a particular challenge for organic pig producers as the use of synthetic amino acids is not allowed.
What solution does the tool offer?:This guide analyses the potential of locally produced and novel protein sources as viable, alternative feed sources for the organic pig industry.
Country:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Type of Practice Tool:Leaflets & guidelines
