Energie- en eiwitbehoefte van biologisch gehouden vleesvarkens

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    In this literature review, the differences in energy and protein requirement between organic and conventional growing finishing pigs were studied. In general, the environmental temperature in organic pig facilities is lower than in conventional ones. By way of compensation, organic pigs have higher energy requirements. On average, organic pigs have a higher feed intake and a unfavourable feed conversion ratio.
