Every sow can raise an average of 2,2 farrows per annum under normal circumstances. This represents approximately 20 piglets per sow per year. If each of the piglets can be raised to reach a mass of 90 kg, one sow can therefore produce 1 800 kg live mass or 1 400 kg pork per annum. On the other hand, the feed intake per sow is about 1,2 tons per annum and every piglet can consume as much as 270 kg feed in order to obtain a mass of 90 kg.
How do we identify the breeds you will take to your commercial piggery unit.

Large white: You will identify this breed by its distinguished erect ears and slightly dished face. The body is long with excellent hams and fine hair. This breed is very prolifc with good mothering ability and can be used for pork and bacon production.
Landrace: You will identify this pig breed by its white colour, dropping ears and a straight snout. Sows produce and rear litters of piglets with very good daily gain and high lean meat content ideal for pork and bacon.
Duroc: You will identify this pig breed by its golden brown to black colour with a thick aubum coat and hard skin. Ears are relatively small and slighly dropping. Traditionally the Durocs hae been used as terminal sires, characterized by quick growth, deep body, broad ham, and shoulder. The Duroc is good at looking after its young and as such is a good breed for outdoor piggery. This pig breed is very suitable for anything from light pock to heavy pig production.
