In fattening pig husbandry new feeding concepts offer great potential to reduce nitrogen inputs in the environment. Fattening pigs differ individual in their nutritional needs and feed intake capacity. Classification into performance groups enables to feed the animals efficiently and to avoid luxury consumption. In the study the impact on ammonia e...

Fattening pig husbandry and associated negative environmental impacts due to nitrogen inputs by ammonia emissions are current issues of social discussion. New resource-efficient feeding systems offer great potential to reduce excess nutrient inputs into the environment. Using ultrasound measurements, fattening pigs can be divided into performance g...

The development of the backfat thickness of fattening pigs in relation to their weight allows first conclusions to be drawn concerning the efficiency of individual growth and classification of the carcass. The hypothesis was that, firstly, via measurement of backfat thickness and muscle diameter, their ratio and the quality of the carcass can be pr...
