Advantage of Piggery over Fishery and Poultry In Nigeria
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 neighbourhood. 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.
