Teaser:Breeding future mother sows on your own farm is an alternative to buying in gilts.
What problem does the tool address?:Many organic pig farms purchase gilts from a breeding operation. These gilts have the classic characteristics of dams, but are not adapted to the specific conditions of organic sow management. Experience has shown that it can be essential for the success of organic pig farming that the animals are optimally suited to the conditions of the production farm.
What solution does the tool offer?:An alternative to buying in gilts is to breed the future mother sows on-farm. This fact sheet shows the advantages and disadvantages of breeding gilts on-farm and explains how it is implemented in a target-oriented manner.
