Looking after pigs in autumn and winter
During autumn and winter, the cooler weather does have some influence on pigs, particularly in terms of their appetite.
For farmers, this means they need to account for the evolutionary instincts pigs possess. These instincts can lead to a shift in the balance of metabolic hormones in pigs during the colder months, as their bodies promote intake and an increase in fat deposition (aka they're energy reserves). While this doesn't occur with all pigs, it still occurs enough for farmers to be prepared to make some possible dietary adjustments, especially as there can be a rise in backfat levels.Read More →

Healthy Eating for Kids 2015: why pork matters
It's a sobering statistic, but Australia has one of the highest obesity rates in the world. While more recent statistics no longer have us listed as the fattest country in the world (in fact, we no longer appear in the top 10), the issue of obesity does continue to present numerous health risks.
For children growing up in this day and age, the abundance of fast food restaurants, plentiful sweets and the emerging trend of comfort food that, while tasty, is better enjoyed on special occasions, there are numerous ways in which the food they eat could lead to weight issues.

The rise of farm-to-table establishments
Over the past several years, the movement of farm-to-table restaurants and eateries has grown exponentially.
As the name denotes, farm-to-table refers to any restaurant that serves food and produce that they bought directly from the farmer. It can also refer to a restaurant that is owned by a farming group/family and they're serving their produce directly.

A looser definition relates to farmer markets or stores where the produce was also directly purchased from a specific farm/farmer.Read More →

But what is it about the humble pig that is so appealing to the Chinese market? Well, it comes down to a few key factors, one of which resides in China's long history and what the pig itself symbolises for the country.Read More →
