In Australia, climatic extremes and environmental pollution concerns have limited the use of pigs and poultry in free-range systems. Nevertheless there is a growing consumer demand for greener and chemical free pork and free-range eggs. This report examines pigs and poultry which were housed in eco shelters and integrated into a pasture crop rotation system to establish if free-range pig and poultry operations associated with organic grain production could be used on a niche scale in the wheat belt of Australia. 2004, 170pp, Pub.
