18 October, 2017: Interested pig farmers will soon have better choice of pig breeds. The commercial white pig breeds produced more than 800 progenies at Yusipang piggery farm following their import by the Department of Livestock in July 2016.As per the department’s mandates on white pig breeds, 40% of the F1 generation is being reared as Grandparents (GP) while another 20% will be retained as Great Grandparents (GGP) replacement stock, and the rest 40% that do not fulfil breeding criterionwill go as fatteners.
The GP will produce Parent stock (PS) or F2 that will reach state-owned pig multiplier farms and private pig breeders for producing fattener piglets.When the country is aiming for pork import substitution, this commercial pig breeds is expected to play a vital role in our endeavor to attain pork self-sufficiency.
