Feeding tips for pork farming

Pigs are non-ruminants, with a simpler digestive system than sheep, cattle and horses. Pigs will not graze exclusively on pasture, in the way cattle, sheep or horses do, but under some farming practices, with the right plant species, grazing can be significant. Protein however is always a particularly important component in pig food. Crude fibre should not exceed 5% for large pigs and around 3% for smaller pigs.

Cattle Nutrition

As ruminants; cattle can digest a greater quantity of fibre than non ruminants; which in turn affects the type of feed which is preferable for them.

Animal Feed and Nutrition Training

Understanding more about animal nutrition and feeding is essential for anyone working with animals.
We offer options to help you to update your knowledge by distance learning.

Our Feeding Animals short course is a self study course requiring around 20 hours of study. Packed with useful information, research and practical tasks, this is a great course. Understand more about animal feeding and nutrition requirements with this 20 hour short course. Learn about the essentials of what is required to feed animals. The Short Course gives a comprehensive guide to the composition of animal feed and looks at different types of feed and how this is used to promote animal health. Lessons are included on both domestic and farming elements.

Animal Feed and Nutrition 100 hour course

Consider a more detailed course in Animal Feed and Nutrition. This is a 100 hour course, again studied by distance learning.

One student said of this course "The information that I need is exactly what I am finding in the course material and information that I collect in order to answer the set questions". Animal Husbandry student, United Arab Emirates


There are ten assignments, which are submitted to your tutor for marking and feedback. You can also contact your tutor with any questions throughout the course. Farm animals only grow to their full potential if they are fed well. Being 'well fed' does not mean being fed a large quantity. An animal that is fed well should be given just enough of the correct foods so that it can realize its production potential. Feeding more than necessary can be both wasteful and uneconomical; and can lead to health problems in the livestock. The better farmer will feed at the 'optimum level' (i.e. just enough (but not more) that is need for optimum production). 


Landscaping & Gardening in the Shade


Shade is a valuable commodity in most gardens. When it’s hot, shade makes us feel cooler and indeed temperatures really are lower in shaded areas. In addition, shade provides a wonderful sense of relaxation. 

Everyone can benefit from a garden with some shady spots.


Children will be able to play outside longer without getting sunburnt. Glare is reduced, and for many that means fewer headaches or eye strain, and the chance of skin cancers is also lessened. Even family pets benefit if they can find a shady spot to keep them cool on a hot day. In warmer climates the summer sun can be hot and relentless - shade then becomes a particularly desirable garden asset. Even in milder climates though, shaded areas makes outdoor living far more comfortable in the height of summer.

Professional Practice for Consultants


The Professional Practice for Consultants ebook will help you consider all of the details that you will need to think of when you are starting out as a consultant.

Whether you work for yourself or someone else, you need to be able to present what you have to offer in a way which attracts employers.

As a consultant, you need to stand out from others in your field.


Whilst to some degree your demand will be related to your relevant experience, years in the industry, and perhaps notoriety through media recognition, publications, word-of-mouth and so forth - the way that you sell yourself is also important.
