Record Breaking Female Pig Delivers 20 Piglets in Nigeria

Friends, today am a Happy Pig Farmer.

7 Days ago I got a fantastic surprise on my farm, an expectant Sow broke all records and Farrowed a Record Breaking 20 Piglets.

The Largewhite Sow comes from a superior lineage of Prolificity and excellent maternal care. Her previous farrowings produced 15 piglets each.

Over the years I have been able to establish in my Female Lines the following unique attributes:

  • Farrow without assistance. I have never ever had a piglet stuck in a Sow during farrowing.

  • Excellent weaning rate. 80% of farrowed piglets survive till weaning

  • High litter sizes. I get an average of 15 piglets from the second farrow.

 

The record breaking Sow is currently on a Lactation diet of Candies, Milk and PKC for the next 2 weeks after which she will be switched to a better ration to help her cope with the huge demand from the Piglets.

Benefits of using Premix

Hello farmers, if you haven’t been using Premix with your Pig feed it probably explains the limited or poor performance you might be experiencing in the reproduction and growth rate of your pigs. Read more…

img_20170216_132425  img_20170216_132416

Hello friends, over the years powdered milk has always been a delightful growth booster for my pigs.

This year as usual am happy to share with everyone this amazing nutritious pig feed.

I still have some tonnes available but its running out fast so make your orders quick.

BENEFITS

  • faster growth rate than corn and soya rations. Milk is completely digestible and within 30 days a 30 kg grower consuming milk feed will attain 60 kg.

  • simplifies feed regimen for pigs. You don’t need to compound any complex formulations as milk is a complete meal already.

    You can feed 50% milk and 50% fermented cassava peels and have excellent results.

  • Boosts Boar(Male) semen quality thereby increasing Sow(female) litter.

  • improves Sow ovulation.

  • reduces meat fat.

  • excellent as lactation and creep feed.

  • appetite booster with sweet taste.

  • develops and corrects musculoskeletal deficiencies in pigs.

  • no need for premix.

  • no need for Lysine.

  • contains antioxidants.

  • – Milk fed pork is rich, sweet, and tender.

How to Use

  • for Weaners 50-80% inclusion ratio is recommended.

  • for Growers between 30-60 kg I recommend 30-50 % inclusion.

  • for Finishers 70kg+…… it’s useful as an appetite booster enabling them consume and digest more quantities of fibre such as Shangi, Brewery waste, Sesame, Cassava peels or PKC…so u can use at 10-20% inclusion ratio

Outdoor/Pasture Pig breeds

Every breed of pig is different and each with it’s own unique characteristics and advantages.
Let’s look at some breed of pigs which seem to be able to take better advantage of the outdoors.

Raising Pigs the easy and natural way

Despite engaging in indoor or intensive operations my love and interest in semi intensive or what I call a confined range within a rich vegetation is uncontrollable. Read more…

Controlled Breeding

Most Pig farmers in Nigeria breed without control and usually get caught up in a financial mess.

In most cases the farmer has insufficient rooms or feed for the pigs he has produced uncontrolled, hence he is forced to sell them at a loss.

Controlled breeding is a kind of family planning that ensures a farmer has complete control over the herd reproduction. It allows the farmer to decide the specific days to breed, farrow and sell. Read more…

Causes of slow growth in pigs

Most times farmers are quick to blame the source of a pig or it’s breed for its slow growth.

The source of a pig and it’s breed are very vital to its performance, however there are other sometimes discreet but significant growth retardants.

Monitoring Growth / Digital Pig Scale

Its a new year and I would like to start on a progressive note.

Getting your pigs to grow rapidly means giving them good feed, which might be very costly.

If you’re are concerned about cost of feeding and time to market, you should be more concerned about the growth rate of your animals.

The only way for you to derive maximum value for every gram of feed is to monitor the daily or weekly weight gain of your pigs using a stress free and accurate device.

The best tool to achieve this performance indicator is a Digital Pig Weight Equipment.

Bio-security – Germicide

The role of a strong disinfectant in a Piggery cannot be excused. A powerful germicide goes a long way in keeping diseases away. I use this everyday in the foot-bath and for scrubbing the Pens. Read more…
