Pig Farming Training– A Hybrid System

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

The typical way of rearing pigs which involves raising pigs in concrete pens and providing all their feed and labour needs.

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.

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.

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.


  • 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

Controlled Breeding Of Pigs In Nigeria For more Profits

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.
