      Pig Farming in Nigeria

      Pig farming also known as piggery is another aspect of farming in Nigeria that is making smart investors and entrepreneurs huge money on daily basis. If you are into this pig farming, you sure wouldn’t lack money again for the rest of your life. The reason is because Pig meet is in high demand in Nigeria and sells very very fast in the market. Another reason is that Pig reproduce in large number and grows very fast.

      A single pig gives birth to as much as 15 piglets at a time, making it one of the most reproducing livestock in the world. Baby pigs is known as shoat, farrow or piglet. Male pig is referred to as the boar while female is sows. As a group they are called a herd or drove.

      Pig Farming

      A Healthy Piglet

      Despite the huge profitability of Piggery, many Nigerian are still overlooking this goldmine because of ignorance of how it works. While some don’t just get the fact that it is a big business –  many who engage in it do it as part time business but if you can engage in this business fully, you are sure going to smile to the bank very soon.

      A fully grown Pig goes for as high as N30,000 depending on the weight. Now Imagine for a year you are able to rear hundred to maturity, you will be making  N3 Million from the sales. If you can take it higher – lets say like 2,000 pigs in year, you will be making upward of N60 Million. Considering how fast pigs reproduces, it wouldn’t be a very much big deal to come up with 100 pigs in a year. Then, how do you go about setting up your pig farm? Below are the important guides

      1. Secure A Breeding Ground

      Depending on how you plan to feed your pigs, a plot of land may just be okay for small scale starting but if you can acquire a large farm land (from 5 acres) that will be better so that your pig can graze in the open and retire to the pen where they’d continue feeding and playing. Land is your biggest investment in this business. Once you have it, you’re half way done.

      Look for land in a rural area where you can get it cheaper. 1acre of land in a rural area will be from N200,000 x how many you want. Do your stuffs there and transport your goods to the town. Some butcher will even be coming to your farm to buy, saving you cost of transportation.

      It is good to raise pigs in pasture by leaving them occasionally to root around in the fields where they can find plants to eat, and that can only be achieved when you have large enough farm land (Pasture Ground) to cater for this. As they mature, you take care so that they do not wander away.

      2. Build Standard Pens

      Big pen is important if you don’t want your pigs to injure themselves. A good and specious pen is also important to keep the pigs healthy and free from diseases and contamination. Proper drainage is needed too to avoid water becoming stagnant in your pen which could attract insects and other harmful pets to harm your pigs. Get an expert involved! Click here to speak with an expert.

      To avoid your pigs getting overly dirty, you need to build a water pool where they can play, swim as pigs likes swimming, and cool themselves which is important to their well being. Changing the water and refilling the pool as frequently as possible will ensure that they are clean all the time. If you are keeping them outdoor, shelter should be build for them.

      3. Buy Healthy Piglets

      To ensure healthy farm, you need to make sure the piglets you are about to start your farm with are health. Buy from trusted source and make sure the ones you are buying has history of vaccination.

      Standard Pig Pen for Big Farmers

      Buy as much as you wants to start with but don’t start with too many. It is advisable to start with small number and increase gradually. This way, you will be able to learn the rope and you grow and anything go wrong at the initial stage, your risk will be minimal.

      Talk To Veterinary Doctor – You need the services of vet doctors for regular check up and vaccination as well as feeding and nutrition advice. Pigs generally eats what human being eat and doe not present much worries when it comes to feed.

      4. Employ Workers

      Employ 4 – 5 persons if your pigs are up to 100. If  you are starting on a smaller scale, you may need lesser number of worker 1 – 2 workers who will be assisting in the cleaning of the pigs and the pens, feeding the pigs and making sure they are well behaved and other things necessary.

      5. Feeding Is Important For Pig Farming

      Just like human being,  Pigs eat a wide variety of foods, anything human can eat, they can eat. Like human being as well, they need balanced diet such as fiber, energy, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to thrive. Feed will take the major chunk of your spending in the farm.

      SEE ALSO: How To Start Animal Feeds Production

      Pigs, like all animals, must have constant access to clean fresh drinking water. As well as tipping the trough to make a wallow, pigs will also stand in the water trough and wash their dirty faces in it, so it needs to be checked regularly, cleaned out and refilled. Galvanised troughs are robust and easy to clean, and not too easy for the pigs to tip over.  Automatic drinkers are available but aren’t half as much fun for the pigs

      Put all these in place and you are as good as having started your business.  There is nothing a good as being in business you are sure of profit; Pig farming is one of such business. All you need to do is to feed and take care of them. Do that proper and watch them multiply in three fold.

              Good of you to think of pig farming.
              It is really a big money spinner business.
              But make sure you buy well vaccinated pigs from a reputable dealer like Obasanjo
              farms at Otta. They are one of the best farmers i know of.
              Also get a ventinary Doctor on standby who can visit your pig farm
              at short notice. Also you will need a small store or barn where you
              can store up their foods and drugs. Water is a must. Dig up a well or do a bore hole first
              before you start raising the pigs. It will also help your business if you can
              get the services of a small boy in the area who
              can always come to help you clean up the pigs dung.(this pig dung is
              good manieur if you handle it right and people will buy it from you)
              All you need to do is to visit your farm site regularly and observe
              your pigs as the feed and play.
              Any pig that does not eat or play is probably sick and needs medical attention.
              Also try to attend a proper training or seminar on pig farming. Read books
              on pigs regularly to up date your knowledge,
              This is my own piece of advice for you. Best wishes and good luck.

        i started with poultry a year ago and added pigs four months ago. i want to stop the poultry and do only the piggery but i am nursing some fears that the piggery can't fetch me money like the poultry. the cost of poultry feed in Ghana is currently high, and the market for eggs was not good in 2013. i get the feed for the pigs at a very cheap price, and for others (left over of cabbage at the market) i do not buy at all. is it advisable to stop the poultry and concentrate all my efforts on the piggery?

        • Darlinton Omeh January 9, 2014

          Osei, you've already mentioned that you are afraid the pig may not yield you money like the poultry, meaning that you make more money from the poultry than the pig. So, why would you stop a business that make you more money to concentrate on the one that make less?

          There are always ups and downs in any business, some years may be very good while some may not be that too good, that shouldn't enough reason to pack up. My advice is that you should work hard to improve your production in 2014 instead of folding up. There will always be demands for foods and meats irrespective of the price changes.

        Mr “D” thank you very much for your education. I ve been reading a lot of comments, questions and some answers. I am suprised when you said that 2-4 million Naira will be requied to start a decent pig net. CAN’T ONE START WITH SMALLER AMOUNT ?. I am happy to hear that one can start with 50-100 pigs. Thank you very much for this type of free education but I suggest that you organise lession or lectures for some people like us.

      • frankroju March 9, 2017

        Please i need information on Oke Aro Pig farm in lagos, any body with reliable security situation of the farm, the cost of rentage of pen most especially the hidden fees for a new comers.

        • Adewole Oriade March 26, 2017

          The farm is secured by central security. You pay around N1,000 per year for security . A pen (room) goes for between N2,000 to N3,500 depending on the size. The other fees are the association fees (N25,000) which you don’t have to start paying immediately if you hide under your landlord. I am starting a piggery there from April this year.

          • Taiwo May 24, 2018

            Pls, can I get such arrangements too. I am in Port Harcourt and keen about the piggery business. Thank you

      • Kenny01 April 4, 2017

        Thanks very much for this write up. please i’v been on the piggery farm for over to years but is unfortunate that i have not have any pig that reproduce till now. Please how can you guide me on this?

      • Saint Ademola June 24, 2017

        I’m a young pig farmer and I’ve been on this forum for years but never posted a thing. This is for starters with less capital; from my experience I realized that renting a ready made pen at the inception of your business is wiser than acquiring land/building, you can later do that after making money from the business. Renting a pen will enable you to spend less on assets and more on the business itself(pigs) which is what will bring profits.
        I’m looking to set-up a corporative alongside other youth farmers, so we can access government loans and grants as a body. I have 2 colleagues here already and all I need is 5 more persons. I can help you secure a pen and quality animals here in Lag, and I’m also on ground to guide you.
        Note: I don’t work for people, I will only show you what to do and guide you on everything you need to know, so you have to be serious and committed. Lastly, pls I don’t want old people in this corporative cos I won’t want anyone that will be acting like he/she gave others the money they invested with. Contact: 09024448262

      • Olusuyi Vincent July 15, 2017

      • Many thanks for your free tutorial on pig breeding. It is mighty kind of you. The good LORD bless you real good.
        Interestingly, I stumbled on your write-up just when i was making up my mind on which to start with first(piggery or poultry), given the limited resources at my disposal. I will start with a piggery, so very graciously give responses to these concerns of mine:1. How to deal with the odour to avoid causing a nuisance or health hazard? Any effective odout control materials/procedures? 2. Can I start with full- grown sows and boars, or is it better starting with piglets? 3.Advise on the ideal numbers ofpigs in each pen.
        Grateful, please revert asap.
        Kind regards, Donald.

      • success emhiose November 1, 2019

        I have seen great prospect in pig farming and thanks a more excellent way Mr Darlinton. Speaking about pig housing, what advice would you give to someone, attempting to use between 6 plots to 1 acre of land. Plus incorporating drainage channel, Bore hole facilities and probably an internal pool.

        Next Question

        Speaking about structure, what structure is best convenience for pig. Most farmers uses wood and others blocks, some leave the pigs to play in the open field?

        Can i obtained a prepared document showing kinds of structure required to rear pigs according to land size?
