Pig Farm Estates, settlements and co-location Issues In Nigeria

Piggery estate or settlements are locations where a lot of Pig farmers exist sharing land, facilities e.t.c

We have quite a few of them in Nigeria particularly in Lagos-State(oke-aro and Gberigbe) and Ogun State(Gudugba).

Am just going to discuss about the advantages and disadvantages of such an arrangement:

Advantages

  • Cheaper labour-you get to share the same workforce with your co-farmers

  • easy access to veterinarian

  • easy access to feed.

  • guaranteed sales market for all sizes of animals

  • knowledge and farm practice sharing

  • affordable pen rentals

  • common water source

  • easy source of breeding stock

Disadvantages

  • Disease outbreak

  • Dirty environment

  • theft of animals or feed

      I just stumbled on your write up about how to join pig farmers at Gberigbe farm settlement which is quite old. In case you have not gotten a reply, the settlement belongs to Lagos State Government and its under the management of Lagos State Agricultural Land Holdings. To get a plot of the land you have to apply to the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture Alausa Ikeja-Tony Tugbiyele 07038569000
