Summary

This video explains how to use silage of the brewery industry by-products for feeding Iberian growing pigs. The traditional Iberian pig production is based on fattening with a natural diet of acorns and grass in the dehesa agroforestry system during autumn and winter.
To obtain a good performance (approx. 1 kg of daily weight gain), pigs older than 1 year need to start their fattening with strong compensatory growth. This compensatory growth will be proportional to the feed restriction in the growth phase.
Silage is an alternative bulky feed to manage feed rationing in pigs. It helps to avoid the stress-related problems during the restricted feeding period (approx. 100 g of daily weight gain), especially in summer, when there is no fresh grass in the pastures of the dehesa.
The tool is addressed to the manufacturers of feed and feedstuffs for pigs, as well as for farmers and farm advisors. It can be used both in organic and conventional farming. The tool can be applied to pig farms with regional access to appropriate by-products and other fibre sources.


Summary translation

El video sugiere el ensilado de subproductos de la industria cervecera para la alimentación del cerdo ibérico en crecimiento.
La producción tradicional del cerdo ibérico se basa en el engorde con una dieta estrictamente natural a base de bellota y hierbas propias del sistema agroforestal de la dehesa durante el otoño y el invierno.
Para obtener un buen rendimiento (aprox. 1 kg de aumento de peso diario (ADG)), los cerdos mayores de 1 año deben iniciar su engorde con un fuerte crecimiento compensatorio. Este crecimiento compensatorio será proporcional a la restricción alimentaria en la fase de crecimiento.
Por tanto, el ensilado de levadura de cerveza puede ser un pienso ideal y voluminoso para evitar los problemas de estrés del período de dieta restringida (aprox. 100 g de ADG), especialmente en verano, cuando no hay hierba fresca en los pastos de dehesa.
La herramienta está dirigida a los fabricantes de piensos y piensos para cerdos, así como a ganaderos y asesores de explotaciones.
Se puede utilizar tanto en agricultura ecológica como convencional.
La herramienta se puede aplicar a granjas de cerdos con acceso regional a subproductos apropiados y una fuente de fibra.

What problem does the tool address?:The tool addresses the problem of the feed rationing for pigs with restricted diet in growing phase.
What solution does the tool offer?:Silage techniques allow the preservation and transportation of industrial by-products for animal feeding purposes. Silage is a high fibre feed and helps prepare animals digestive system for the switch to montanera feeding.
