A commercial pig feed is the best choice for your pigs. However, some pig owners choose to recycle and reduce waste by feeding their pigs food scraps. This is a great way to reduce waste, provided you avoid swill feeding.
The RSPCA's mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection.
