Piggery Farming is simply the keeping of pigs for home meat and income generation. Pigs also provide manure which facilitates proper growth and yield of food crops. We need support to set up piggery housing structure. We need The ‘pig-seed’ (10 piglets) comprises of male / female piglet that are usually between 2-3 months old. The beneficiaries youths are expected to raise them for a further 4 months until maturity (7-8 months old). Over the first 3 months of the project, the pigs are given medication and partial dietary support. Upon the first spawning of the female pig, each original beneficiary is then expected to return two piglets of the first brood when they reach two months old, that are in turn passed on to another beneficiary youth in another phase of the project. Only once a beneficiary has reached this stage can the project be deemed fully theirs. The second round beneficiaries are also expected to go through the same project procedure as their predecessors, continuing the cycle. From this point, the beneficiaries are expected to begin to realise proceeds from their project through either the sale of piglets or raising them until maturity for sale (at a much higher price). Typical Project Costs For a project benefiting 10 members, a total of UGX 1,250,000. ( US $ 500) is required to support the first phase beneficiaries of this project.
From the piggery project, the piggery droppings are used as manure. to benefit the banana and cassava plantations . ensure quality production. Pigs can be raised in controlled or free environment, as a small- or large-scale business.
