  • Product Description
 

Livestock plays an important role in the economy of Mizopam as crop production is still traditional. Pig occupies a unique place, as pig rearing is considered to be the most encouraging and appropriate livestock enterprise. The present study was undertaken to find out management practices, source of information, and adoption of technologies by the pig farmers in Mizoram. From the study it is found that pigs were reared in stalls. The space provided to the adult pigs was inadequate. The farmers preferred cross-bred animals to rear. The overall adoption level of the farmers on pig rearing was partial. The adoptions of recommended technologies were associated with age, education, operational land holding, farm size, income from piggery, social participation. Personal localite sources of information were regularly used for farm information. Television, Radio and Newspaper were preferred sources of information under mass media. On-farm Demonstration was the mostly preferred by the farmers. The high market price of piglets and feeds, lack of training on pig rearing, lack of awareness amongst farmers, etc as major constraints in pig rearing.
