Peas in pig feed

Isabella Munder, Astrid Heid, Sarah Wochner
Posted: 12.05.2021
In this video, pig farmer Martin Hanselmann reports on his experiences in growing and feeding peas to pigs. He runs a part-time farm in Kerleweck, Germany and keeps Swabian-Hall fattening pigs on 550 fattening pens with attached piglet rearing. Marketing is done through the Schwäbisch Hall farmers' producer association. He grows a large part of the feed on his own arable land, namely barley, wheat, maize, triticale and peas. The pea is a welcome balance in the crop rotation. The share of peas in pig feed, in the finishing fattening stage, is five percent.
