Wild Animal and Farm Animal

Pigs are considered good luck symbols and are an important food source. They are true olfactory artists and their auditory sense is excellently developed. Their vision, however, is not good at all. The film presents wild pigs and farm pigs and deals with the topics of factory farming and organic farming. Domestic pigs are descended from the wild boars spread all over Europe. Wild Boars are nocturnal animals, love wallowing in the mud, rub against tree trunks and feed on acorns and beechnuts. Domestic pigs might become up to 12 years old provided they were not already slaughtered at the age of six months and a weight of 100 kilogrammes. In factory farming large amounts of meat are to be produced fast and at little cost. This is detrimental to the health of man and animal. Contrary to factory farming, ecological farming ensures species-appropriate husbandry and sustainable production. Together with the extensive accompanying material the DVD is ideally suited for use in the classroom.
