Summary

The tool shows the benefits of roughage feeding and foraging for pigs and then looks at some of the possible options for farmers. The feed available from worms and other soil living invertebrates is also explained.
It is a technical note giving options rather than answers. Although written for organic farmers it is relevant to non-organic farmers. Although UK based it has potential for all regions.
