Food-to-Animal Organics/Feed Programs


Are you a hog farmer or know of someone who farms that is able to accept food scraps?


Large generators of food scrap are able to contract with a farmer or recycler - where your food scraps will be hauled away and processed into food for pigs.


The Minnesota Board of Animal Health permits swine/hog farms who wish to feed food scraps/food waste to their livestock.  The programs used are the 'Garbage Feeding' - Class A permit or the 'Exempt Materials Feeding' - Class B permit.



Farms collect your business' food scraps on-site. Then, as part of their diet, the scraps are fed to the livestock.
