Production and composition of manure from pigs fattened on sawdust, wood shaving or bark-based litter material



Production and composition of manure from pigs fattened on sawdust, wood shaving or bark-based litter material



Techni Porc 27(4): 29-37



This article provides reference data on the production, composition and excretion of manure from pigs fattened in sawdust or other wood waste products as litter in comparison to straw. Dry and fresh sawdust, dry wood shavings and fresh bark were tested. The results of a survey led by the IDF in association with the ITP and conducted on the Farming Group and Chamber of Agriculture technicians were analysed.
