Summary: 

This project pretends to measure the effect of stocking density on extensively pig farming and compare it with semi-extensive systems and native breeds of hybrids. This research study is thought in 5 tests located in oak woods or chestnut woods from the 3 autonomous communities involved. The productive and environmental factors of the implementation of this silvopasture systems with native breeds will be quantified and evaluated.
