DON'T FEED KITCHEN WASTE OR CATERING WASTE TO YOUR PIGS. ITS ILLEGAL!!!

You must not risk feeding any meat products back to your pigs but there are some waste products that you can feed. This advice is from the DEFRA website.

Can milk, milk based products, bakery products, pasta, chocolate, sweet and similar products be fed to livestock?

Milk and milk based products and biscuits, bakery waste, pasta, chocolate, sweet and similar products contain ingredients, such as rennet or melted fat, milk or eggs, which have been incorporated in those products but which are not the main ingredient can be fed to livestock. Adequate measures must be in place to ensure against cross contamination by meat and other products of animal origin.

Remember before feeding any waste products always check with your Local Animal Health Office.

There are lots of other raw materials that you can feed to pigs. Professor Sandra Edwards of Newcastle University has produced a handbook for feeding organic pigs which has recommendations on the use of Silage, Sugar Beet, Potatoes, Brewers Grains etc. Click here to download a copy.
