Following Andrew’s recent post on the reported revival of buffalos in northern Thailand, this piece on pigs in Laos caught my attention. The relevant report comes from “your portal on pig production”, It discusses an International Centre for Tropical Agriculture project that seeks to introduce more forage legumes to supplement the diets of pigs in rural Laos.

Readers looking for more details (and pictures) on this project will find this short report also rewards a download.

As an aside, in the past I have invited more contributions from scientists who work (in whatever capacity) in mainland Southeast Asia. That offer still stands and I would be delighted to hear from anyone who wants to draw attention to scientific issues in the region.
