Pig farming is a blooming business in Nigeria because pig meat (pork) is one of the most produced animal meats in the world. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), 38% of the meat protein consumed in the world is pork. Pork is the most abundantly produced and consumed animal meat in the world. This global consumption of pork means you can start your pig farming business and export pork to the world. You can even start by exporting it to nearby Benin republic; the love for pork in that country is incredible!
Another strong reason for considering pig farming in Nigeria is because a pig can give birth to 6 to 12 piglets at once while being pregnant for only 4 months. This means that one pig can conceive twice in one year and give birth to 12 to 24 piglets. It also takes just 6 to 8 months for a pig to mature and reach market weight. So, if a pig gets pregnant in January and gives birth in May, by December the piglets will be ready for either sales or consumption. This makes pig farming in Nigeria a very commercially viable and profitable business.
