Pig farming depends heavily on the environment because pigs needs all the elements for the comfort (enough space for sleep and movement, enough food depending on nutritional requirements for the animal category, water ad libitum, and health insurance) for growth and to deposit bonus. When these needs are not respected, pigs begin to lose weight and that affect the production and the economic efficiency of the farm.
