Do pigs need access to forage? How are they affected by eating forage and what are the benefits?

In this video, the researchers talk about their work investigating and evaluating whether grass and clover silage can work well as a locally grown feed resource in organic pig production. It includes, for example, in what form the forage should be fed, how the pigs grow, how the fertility and reproduction of the sows are affected and whether the forage affects the behavior of the pigs.

The video is in Swedish with subtitles in English.
