Smoothie for pigs

 

Norsvin (Cooperative business owned by norwegian pig farmers) and several other partners are working on a very exiting research project these days. They have already done the first part of the project, with a big juice press and an Orkel MP2000 Compactor.

The fresh grass is transported from the trailer and into the juicer. The remaining grass is transported to the Compactor to be baled.


GRASS JUICE AS PROTEIN SOURCE AND REMAINING GRASS IN ORKEL BALES MAKES A COMPLETE NUTRITION SYSTEM

Today, barley and fodder are the most important components of the pig forage, but grains alone does not contain enough proteins to be a perfect pig feed. Therefore, raw materials with higher protein content, such as soya, oilseeds and field beans are needed.

Fresh grass, dried grass or ensiled grass can not cover large parts of the feed for slaughter pig. This is because grass has too much shreds and because easily digestible protein easily converts into simple nitrogen compounds such as ammonia and urea. The pig must have a protein consisting of amino acids and can not utilize simple nitrogen compounds.
