Carbon footprint for UK pig farms drops significantly

A study by Queen's University Belfast has revealed a 40% decline in the carbon footprint of British pig farms.

The study, published in the journal Agricultural Systems, reviewed data on the carbon footprint of English, Scottish and Welsh pig farms over the last 20 years.

Animal feed was found to be central to the environmental impact of pig farms, accounting for between 75-80% of carbon footprint.
