Program description

Traditionally pigs are a source of high quality protein, which can be produced from agricultural by-products unsuitable for human consumption. Animal feed is commonly the most limiting factor in relation to livestock production, as it may be in short supply to expensive and/or of substandard quality. The increasing demand for pork and the importance of feed requires practice-oriented workers in extension, education and training.

Target Audience
Extension officers, teachers and instructors in
animal production and managers in the field of
the husbandry of pigs and compound feed production.

Objectives
As a result of the training the participant is able to:
• Manage or supervise or guide pig production from back-yard systems to intensive, intermediate scale pig farming methods;
• Appreciate the relevance of local poultry farmers’ knowledge, experience and practices and create awareness of sustainable production concepts and methods;
• Identify, recognise and analyse opportunities and problems, taking into account constraints and utilise possibilities concerning pig husbandry and the use of local feed-stuffs;
• Co-operate with others of various disciplines in planning, designing and implementing pro-jects in the field of pig husbandry and animal feed production;
• Transfer relevant knowledge, skills and technology concepts to small and intermediate scale pig farmers and ditto animal feed producing units;
• Tackle more efficiently the problems with regard to optimum utilisation of locally available feed-stuffs, which are unsuitable for human consumption.
