    thanks for sharing your ideas. iam just afraid what if those pigs die? i want to know how to prevent this kind of unpredictable situation

    • Roffer Monajan

      Prevention is always better than cure Adriel so you must have a vaccination program, also bio security plays a big role on the safety of your pigs. and last. Your ability or your personnel’s pig husbandry experience and knowledge.

    Hello Mr.Monajan! I want to ask if my budget for my piggery business is enough. I’m thinking if my 100k budget is enough for my startup 10 fattening pigs or should increase the pig or my budget. I’ll start my plan in year 2020 and I just cant keep it out in my head

    • Roffer Monajan

      Are you planning to raise the pigs yourself? how bout your pig housing? price of piglets now varies from 2,000-3,000,and feed cost rough estimate of 7,400 medicine electricity and water.. I think adding another 50k will do.

    Hello mr.monajan! My husband and I are planning to have a small business and piggery is the number 1 choice of us,especially the fattening.can you give us best advice what we can do first and how much the capital we need to spent??thank you!

    • Roffer Monajan

      Jane actually there are a lot of things to consider
      1) How many pigs are you planning to raise?
      2) Do you already have the pig house?

      All the capital needed for you to estimate your capital requirement is in the article.

    whoa! Just as Im looking for some answer to my questions. Kudos to you sir! But, just to add up. I have a really low budget on putting up my own piggery. I got water and electricity supply. I got their “cage” that can fit probably 6 pigs.

    Im planning to buy 2 to 3 fattening pigs. how much it will cost me? Pardon me as Im really kind of new in this kind of business, but aiming to focus on this.

    • Roffer Monajan

      Dhen,

      You have to ask for current price around your area, but now it’s around 2,800 to 3,000 pesos first 10 kilos then 100 pesos for succeeding kilos.

      so if a piglet weighs 15 kilos (3000/kl) 10kl=3,000….5kilos=500 pesos total 3,500.

    Hi Mr. Monajan,

    I have just started with my piggery with 3 piglets as I have little knowledge on it
    and my brother is the one taking care of them in Batangas. I just realized I have spent more than 20k
    (for 3 piglets, vaccine and feeds) already since June , first week. If this succeeds I am planning to buy more, build a larger pig house and increase my capital. My question is how am I going to earn from each pigs especially if it requires a lot of expenses. Let’s say 3 pigs would cost 25k (including only pigs, feeds and vaccine), and an additional 5k for others.Would the pig sell for 10k each for ROI? I’m still confuse as how to really earn from this. Your opinion would be a very big help for me to continue what we have just started and succeed on this. Thank you so much in advance!

    • Roffer Monajan

      Vanessa,

      10K for a pig?
      it depends..
      first you reach the weight for that value. Backyard price as of the moment ( varies from place to place) right now is 125/Kl if your pigs weigh at least 85 kilos per head on your disposal then that is already 10k, calculate if you they reach 90 kilos or up.

    Hi Mr. Monajan
    First of all i will thank you for your work here, it was info. which help understanding what you are going to meet in the running a piggery.
    My problem is i couldnt imagain what it would cost a modern inndoor piggery fully equipmented with automaticly feeders and water supplement.
    As you said psq cost 5, 960 for a building with cement.
    Sencerely

    • Roffer Monajan

      Mohammad,

      I hope the article will not misled you, since all of the figures and assumptions are based on Philippine Currency also the materials and their prices are based on Philippine value of trade.

    Hii Mr. Raffy

    This is more like a question than a comment.
    Is it only the first book that is free or all of them are? If so, how do I download the succeeding books?
    Thanks.

    We started for 4 pigs and we sold 3 pig after almost 4 months, we kept 1 to become a mother. Currently we have 15 heads piglets and 1 gilt hopefully this month she will reach the heat period for mating. And its true as a newbie there is a lot to consider and its best to breed your own gilt and boar. This article is a big help! Cheers… Thanks to you…

  11. liezl orfano

    Hi sir

    I was very interested in reading your article.
    My question is what are you refering to when you talk about medicines?
    Do the piglets need to be vaccinated? If so how often?
    Do they need to be wormed or treated for any other parasites or infections?

    Thank you

    Ian

    Hi Sir, Good Day!

    I appreciate how much work you have done for this article. I have some question in mind as well.

    I am planning to start a piggery. We already have pig pens that can accommodate 10-15 pigs from my late Lola. Will my 50k start up investment is enough? What other financial advice you can give in terms of surviving the business?

    thank you.

    P.S If possible, I would like to ask a copy of the book as well. thank you.

    Thank you Roffer for the informative post regarding piggery. I would like to know your opinion on the scenario below:
    Since my interest is in this side of agriculture, but no land and has a limited time to handle such, someone had offered me to buy piglets from them (Php 3,600 per piglet). They will be the one who will feed and nurture the pig. Once grown, I have 2 options, whether to (1st) I’ll leave the pig to them and just get the profit [worth Php 2,400] or (2nd) I’ll get the pig but will pay them for the feeds and workers .

    What would be the most effective and safe in terms of investment and business.
    Thank you!

    Hi Mr. Manahan,
    First I would like to thank you for the very informative article. Im planning to start a piggery business with 10heads. How much overall capital do I need from housing (bamboo)/(cement) and feed cost for 10heads from start until selling them? I’ll be waiting for your response. Thank you

    Hi Roffer

    I am an Australian citizen who has been to the Philippines seven times now for a total of 3 years total length of stay,.

    I am moving back to the Philippines this coming Saturday the 18th of May 2019 and I would like to start a large piggery somewhere in the Philippines which is a safe area for foreigners and near to a large SM and Robinson mall  if possible…..I am thinking about quezon city maybe and I am open to suggestions for a better location as I have not found one yet (Mindanao is not even a thought.due to it being so dangerous for foreigners).

    I have in the past owned a small piggery of ten piglets but due to safety reasons I was evacuated from the area.

    I am very poor as I am on the pension from Australia with no savings at all. I know that owning a piggery is probably the best solution for me to make some decent money as long as I have a large piggery business which I will start small with only ten sows or less and hopefully build the business up to 1,000 or more pigs and the more pigs the better. 

    If I end up having 1,000 or 10,000 or more pigs over time then how much land do i need and how much can it cost me to breed and raise the pigs to market weight of 90kg or 100kg?

    How much income can I make from say 100 to 1,000 pigs every week or every month and then how much income can I get from 10,000 pigs?

    I will need to rent.some land as I am not aloud to buy land as I am a foreigner……so how much land do you think will be big enough to have 1,000 to 10,000 pigs?

    How do I mix my own feed as I am still waiting for lesson two and lesson three from you and buying ready made feeds is very expensive. 

    I eagerly await your reply and hopefully I can get some help from you in starting my large piggery business!

    Thank you
