Methane emissions from different forms of pig fattening

Methane emissions from different forms of pig fattening

Landbauforschung Volkenrode 48(1): 26-34

Methane emissions were measured for different forms of pig fattening during 1993-7. Ten pigs for each experiment were kept inside stables (effectively aerated closed boxes) during fattening periods of 100-110 days, keeping consistent conditions for feeding, aeration, manure management etc. There were 3 similar boxes available in the stable, meaning that it was possible to run 3 experiments simultaneously.
