As our herds have grown it has been a continuing struggle to find enough good hay each year. Hay is important to get our livestock through the coming six months of winter. It is summer pastured stored for winter much like the vegetable canning, drying and cold storage we do for our family.
By spring they will have eaten up virtually all of the hay we put out. Her post title was the Definitive Guide but it is anything but that.
In fact, they thrive on it. These confused people reason that because pigs are monogastric rather than ruminants the pigs are unable to digest grass. There are many species that eat grass and even harder to digest cellulose e.
Some animals have four stomaches, some have two, some have one — There are many strategies. The fact is the pigs get a lot of food value out of grass. Tammy Worth coming over to check me out sitting in her paddock.
Additionally, pasture is not all grass — there are clovers, alfalfa, shrubs, young trees and a lot of other forages. They too enjoy the above forages.
In fact, sheep graze ground and browse brush while goats mostly browse brush and trees. They simply grow a little bit slower and are leaner than grain fed pigs. Pasture is lower in calories and lysine — a limiting amino-acid. There are a lot of reasons why people are confused about monogastric animals eating grass.
The first and foremost is that they presuppose that all pasture is grass. Yes, you can plant a monocrop of just grass, a lawn like pasture, but the reality is that natural pastures are a wide variety of plant species. With intent you can improve this further mixing soft grasses with legumes, brassicas, small grains, amaranths, chicory and other forages.
These processes make the fibrous foods more digestible just like in multi-stomached animals. Most of the time we also feed dairy which provides lysine and added calories. Dairy also makes the pork taste sweeter.
We grow and feed pumpkins, other veggies, apples and recently we sometimes get boiled barley high in fiber, protein and minerals from a local brew pub. The fact remains, pigs do eat pasture, hay and grass and they can thrive on it. So what about the question of digestibility? Our pastured pigs really are out eating grass in the pastures and they do digest it.
I look at their manure both macroscopically and microscopically. I study their dung to know their health. I have taken the pigs apart and examined their entrails, looking at it in various places through their digestive track.
It is very clear that the grass is being broken down and digested. Over the course of the summer our pigs mow the fields eating hundreds of thousands of pounds of grass, clover, alfalfa and other forages. Over the course of the winter they consume virtually all of the overlbs of hay we put out each year.
It went through the pigs and the pigs grew. The fact that the pigs thrive and grow is the final proof: Pigs do eat grass.Starbucks, despite their inflated prices have been able to create a sense of brand loyalty with and array of loyal followers.
