Raising Organic Pigs: A Guide to USDA Certified Organic Requirements

PDF: $0.99

Pigs effectively convert grains, produce, and unsalable agricultural products into highly marketable pork and provide readily available crop nutrients as manure. The label “USDA certified organic” is reserved for those products raised and produced in compliance with federal regulations. This publication addresses the four general topics related to organic certification for pigs: source of animals, feed, healthcare, and living conditions. Emphasis is given to reviewing allowed and prohibited practices for the experienced pig farmer considering organic pig production.
