Gut Health: It’s a Pig Deal!

October 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Does it matter what we feed our farm animals? Well, yes, it’s a pig deal!

BiOrbic and the AgriAware are running a primary school workshop at Airfield Estate Farm to explore all the ways we can improve animal gut health. Including:

  • What is a pig’s anatomy like?
  • How do pigs get sick and how can we protect them?
  • What different kinds of nutrition can we use to ensure our pigs are healthy?

After the workshop, we’ll be able to see some animals on the farm! Though this is an in-person event, we’ll be posting on social media and a school resource will be uploaded to the BiOrbic website afterwards so keep your eyes peeled!
