dc.description.abstract <p>At the Iowa State University (ISU) Armstrong Farm in southwest Iowa, a Swedish feeder pig production system is being demonstrated. The Swedish system relies on bedding, simple buildings, intensive management, and keen husbandry for success. Gestation and breeding phases are housed in a hooped structure with individual feeding stalls. Large round bales of cornstalks are used for the deep bedded areas where the sows live in groups. A 1950s style hog house has been remodeled for farrowing, group lactation, and nursery. Farrowing cubicles with rollers and oat straw bedding are used. The hog house has been remodeled with “breathable” ceiling and exhaust fans. Oat straw is used for bedding. Two groups of Yorkshire x Landrace sows bred to Hampshire boars will produce feeder pigs in the system. Performance of the system will be documented.</p>
