Advantage of Piggery over Fishery and Poultry
Though i run an integrated farm(poultry,fish and pig). I will share with you the advantages of Piggery over Poultry and Fishery:
- Lower mortality rate- Pigs are not as fragile, they can still cope with some delays in feeding and water.
- Cheaper cost of feeding- Pigs can be fed with a wide variety of products, like humans they are omnivores. Pig feed also costs lesser per kilo compared to Chicken and Fish feed.
- Security- because most people have prejudiced opinions towards pigs they don’t even come close to them, hence the thought of theft doesn’t cross their mind. Some see pigs as a taboo.
Also pigs are highly uncooperative animals to handle, they don’t necessarily move in herds .
- Diseases- pigs are less susceptible to diseases unlike poultry. Pigs don’t require any special vaccines. All they need is occasional vitamin supplement, de-worming and anti-bacterial treatments.
- More Profitable– In piggery, when selling a kilogram is a kilogram whether the animal is Big or Small;whereas in fishery the fishes are sold at different weights per kilogram.
- Easy on the pocket- if you’re very resourceful you can feed a pig with 50 Naira a day by collecting roughage(cassava peels, corn chaff) in your neighborhood. U can’t dare that with layers or fishes. Also you can easily source brewery waste and palm kernel cake cake for them
- Facility conversion– Incase you get tired of farming you can easily convert the pens to offices or accommodation. The designs are relevant. i doubt you can easily achieve that in poultry and fishery.
