Abstract

Development of systems enabling producers to capture premiums offered by niche markets is of great interest to many Iowa farmers. Of key concern is a winter farrowing system that is both economical to operate and meets the criteria of natural pork buyers. This report details the results from the alternative winter farrowing system demonstrated at the ISU Allee Demonstration Farm near Newell during the winter of 2002/2003.
