Table 3 Pig roaming land type by selected covariates. Mean percentage (95% CI) of active roaming time spent in given land type. Farmland not shown due to infrequent roaming; other pig variables not shown (pig sex, age, and household herd size) were not significantly associated with any roaming land type
