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…

Monitoring Growth / Digital Pig Scale

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

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.
