The 'Pigs' Research Group specialises in pig nutrition at each physiological stage. We aim to meet societal expectations and address environmental concerns whilst providing high-quality products to Swiss consumers. Our research focuses on defining and modelling the nutrient requirements of individual pigs to feed them efficiently and minimise their environmental impact. Our expertise extends beyond nutrition to physiology, health, feed formulation, modelling and meat quality.
