Nagrel Usually, the rice hull replaced every cycle or harvest of the pigs. What makes a good harvest? The feeding trough is only about 10 inches wide — wide enough for the pig to eat from and narrow enough to prevent the pigs from sleeping on the babuyyang. Shed-type or semi-monitor type roofs are generally recommended. Other materials that may be available can also be used as long as they do not potentially hurt or stress the pigs.

Controlled water level depending on the age of the animal. Clean thoroughly and regularly; when conditioned, the pigs will use the area not only to clean themselves but may also defecate and urinate in this area; thus, it must be cleaned everyday. Keep for the whole growing season.

Remove any animal waste in this area. Add more rice hull as needed. Natural Feeds -- organic sources, no antibiotics added, no animal source additives Feed fermentation -- increases the digestibility of the feed mixture. Fixed narrow dimension of the feeding trough -- this will condition the pigs not to use this area except for feeding.

This version includes also a wastewater treament filtration system to process the water coming from the wading area of the pig pens. The wastewater treatment system is similar to the BioSand system, except activated carbon is added as a layer in the treatment process.

In part this is due to the high organic content of the waste. A key feature that differentiate the PIGS system from conventional pig housing is the inclusion of a wading or wallowing pond.

Cost saving practices are emphasized in each of the PIGS system videos included here. Many of the features take into consider the comfort and well-being of the pigs -- clean, well fed and comfortable pigs will grow faster and unstressed so that they are less likely to get sick.

Further, PIGS system suggest integration measure for efficient use of all components arising from pigs raising -- wastewater treatment and subsequent use of the treated water for watering plants, solid waste used in vermicomposting to produce organic fertilizer, and more.

While the use of rice hull bedding seems a simple innovation, it is one of the key features in achieving odorless pig raising. Other factors that contribute to odorless pig raising include the "wallowing pond" to keep the pigs clean and provide cooling, strict control of feeding to avoid over-feeding and complete nutritional diet to avoid waste.

How to Raise Pigs: Baboyang walang amoy or Odorless Pigpen Episode 2 This portion focuses on feeds, feeding strategies and the rational for not using antibiotics.

This is not an endorsement of FeedPro products. Consider alternative local sources of feeds, or if you take the time, do your own research and formulate your own feeds. This is specially recommended for younger pigs. The focus here is taking the time to clean the "pig pool", and why it is critical to keep the pigs clean. This episode esplores also why the "pig pool" is important in pig raising.

In countries, with plenty of available cheap land, pigs are alowed to "free range". The narrator, Dr. Jhun Cahusay, is correct to point out why this is not practical in the Philippines.
