The case study offers a comparison between two models of pig breeding, intensive and extensive, localised in a peripheral and economically marginal mountain area of Calabria. The first model is attributable to the HEI (High External Input) category of breeding systems, and is generally characterised by a greater use of resources and external relations; the second, attributable to LEI (Low External Input) models, and ascribable to “Mountain Systems” or to “Mixed crop-livestock systems”, presents a higher degree of selfsufficiency, but is heavily exposed to the variability of natural factors and conditions strictly linked to the territory. This study intends to bring out, through an analysis of the technicaleconomic, environmental, and social institutional determinants, the characteristics of greater or lesser resilience of the two productive models, in relation to the range of possible pressures originating from the conditions, or from the variations of the factors capable of modulating these determinants.

Abstract

The case study offers a comparison between two models of pig breeding, intensive and extensive, localised in a peripheral and economically marginal mountain area of Calabria. The first model is attributable to the HEI (High External Input) category of breeding systems, and is generally characterised by a greater use of resources and external relations; the second, attributable to LEI (Low External Input) models, and ascribable to “Mountain Systems” or to “Mixed crop-livestock systems”, presents a higher degree of selfsufficiency, but is heavily exposed to the variability of natural factors and conditions strictly linked to the territory. This study intends to bring out, through an analysis of the technicaleconomic, environmental, and social institutional determinants, the characteristics of greater or lesser resilience of the two productive models, in relation to the range of possible pressures originating from the conditions, or from the variations of the factors capable of modulating these determinants.
