Hello folks, As a fellow farmer, I have shared a lot of valuable information on this site based on my personal experience.
The truth about Pig Farming is you can’t wish away adequate training especially if you treasure your investment.
Over the years many people believed they could learn along the way but alas after exhausting their war-chest they quit.
The reality is Pig Farming is a profitable business venture and yet like every form of agriculture it is very technical and requires constant research and development.
In order to address some of the challenges encountered by farmers and with a strong desire to sustain the industry I will be commencing a first of it’s kind, twin tracked production methodologies (Intensive Pig Farming and Pasture Pig Farming) practical training to solve the recurrent and emerging challenges in the pig industry in Nigeria.
Below is a brief overview of both programs
INTENSIVE PRODUCTION SYSTEM
The typical way of rearing pigs which involves raising pigs in concrete pens and providing all their feed and labour needs.

Pig Housing, Facilities and Equipment
Feed and Nutrition
Breeding Challenges(Sow Mortality, Weaner Mortailty, Diarrhoea)
Health and Diseases
PASTURE PIG FARMING
An approach to raising pigs by allowing them graze on plants and other natural resources with or without supplemental feeding within a confined environment.
The Pasture program helps you unlock the potentials of our natural environment for raising pigs in a low cost, safe, profitable and sustainable approach.

Some of the practices to be learnt are also beneficial in other areas of animal husbandry(cattle, goat, sheep), poultry and aquaculture.
Its my intention to transfer a generation of knowledge and resources to participants at the training, at the end of the program the farmer is well informed and adopts the track that guarantees sustainable profits and management.
