During first pregnancy gives birth to 6-7 children and during second pregnancy it gives birth to 10-14 children. If you are rearing the pig for meat purpose.
If you are rearing pig for meat purpose, then a pig gains about about 1 quintal of weight in 7 to 8 months and is sold around Rs 100 per kg. And pregnant gilt can be sold at Rs 150-2 per kg. There is no problem in pig marketing as merchants themselves visit the farm to buy the pigs.
How does it results in continuous income?
Suppose if the gilt is impregnated today, then after 115 days she give birth to the babies. Then babies are given mother milk up to one month and then they are separated. When the pig’s children are separated, then after 5-7 days, she gets pregnant again. In this way the circle continues. It is important to note that this circle will continue to function properly if the feed given is good and healthy. If we did not feed them properly and kept feeding milk to the babies for 2 months and did not separate the children from the mother then the circle would get defective. Therefore, yes feed expenses comes more, but you can achieve the expected profit.
