The BREED free online training course on sustainable pig farming

The free online BREED training course on sustainable pig farming responds to the needs of farmers to establish and derive income from free-range pig farms. The course supports the learners to establish or develop a free-range pig farm by helping them to undertake all the actions which are needed.

The course addresses to students from the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector, freely accessible under the guidance of VET teachers or trainers within VET training programmes, or in self-learning methodology, as well as to other users who could be existing or potential new pig breeders, or people who may gain necessary competencies for their career and future professional life.

The topics covered by the course will enable participants to gain knowledge and answers to many of the essential questions that a new livestock operator may have when starting a farm or improving the sustainability of an existing farm.

The course is available online open access in English, Italian, Polish, Greek, Portuguese and Lithuanian.
