Starting a Pig Farm in Ghana

Pig farming business is booming in Ghana presently because of high demand of pork especially as foreigners visits the country in search of new business opportunities. Demand in Accra is so  huge that pig  farmers cannot meet the growing demand for pork.

Demand for pork in Ashanti region i learnt is also very huge. Farmers can take this opportunity to try the pig business since poultry is less lucrative due to the high frozen chicken that is imported into the country.

What does it take to Start a Pig Farm

Pig farming demands capital and it really depends on what size you want to start with. After three years of growing maize, i decided to start my pig farm this year and the cost estimate of the pig sty is no joke.

The land is already paid for. I want to start with 8 females (gilts) and two (boar) males  and this is what the plan of my  pig sty looks like

Cost estimate for Building materials and Workmanship

    Two tipper load of stone (Single axle) 200 400
    Two Tipper load of sand (Single axle) 100 200
    Five hundred 6″ Blocks 1.2 600
    50 bags of   Cements 13.0 650
    3 bundles roofing    Sheets 200 600
    20 Iron  Rods 15 300
    20 Woods  (2 by 6″) 20 400
    8 Wire Gauze   (4 by 8ft) 15 120
    Workmanship   from start to finish 1000
    TOTAL 4270

    So to build the sty and buy 8 piglet,  I am looking at roughly GH4500.00 which is equivalent to about $3000.00. You don’t have to start on this scale if you don’t have the cash to start. You can start with at least one and grow up your pigs because i believe in small beginnings. The biggest challenge is however getting a decent place for the pigs to stay.

Don’t forget that as they increase in weight and size, the pigs are very strong so they can pull down any weak structure.  A good source of water is also very important to the siting of your pig farm. If you can dig a well to get them clean drinking water if there is no tap in your farm, do it.

What are you going to feed you Pigs on?

Pigs eat a lot and it will be very advisable to plan how you will feed your pigs. They will make terrible noise if they are hungry so you need a full-time worker dedicated to feed the pigs. Commercial feeding is not economical but it’s very good to feed them on concentrates mixture once in a while. It is best to feed pigs twice a day. You can however prepare your own concentrate made up of maize, wheat bran, palm kennel  cake and fish meal.

You need to make contact with the brewery company in your locality and purchase the left over wheat and maize that is used in brewery, that is a cheap source of food for the pigs. If you have a secondary school in your locality, request for their left over food.  This must be boiled before given to the pigs.

Cassava can also be boiled mixed with some fish and given to the pigs. To be honest, I think you might have to design a feeding time-table for the pigs.

What am I expecting from my 8 gilt and two boars

I am going to look for cash to see this business through because it is very profitable. I intend to get the females ready for mating after 5 months of rearing them. An average of 8 piglet per female pig (Sow) is expected. At the end of year one, I am expecting 70 pigs. Meaning by June next year, my pigs should be ready for mating and by ending of September, 64 piglets expected.

If I can get 30 to 40 gilt, at least 10 boars would be sold out. By march 2013, all my females would be ready for mating. Lets say each deliver an average of 8 piglets, that is roughly another 400 piglets.  Total population as of December 2013 would be 500. I would give them a good finisher and sell all my pigs at least GH400.00. That will be a cool GH200,000.00.

I would see my profit margin when I do a serious cost analysis on the project, but honestly, I know I can make a lot of good cash if I handle the project well and pray swine fever does not attack my herd.

Are you interested in starting a Pig Farm?

Take the very first step to get your land and build your sty, you can make it if you are committed to the project. The money you would make at the end of a year would set you aside from your peers. Just take the first step and start. It will be better if you have a work doing and you rear the pig part-time.

You will need money to feed them, so just put in part of your income to rear your pigs. If you can get some five to 10 acres to grow some maize, cassava, sweet potatoes, it will help. There are some great books about pig rearing you must read, i will recommend the following books

    thank you ulomo for this information. you have given me a fare idea of how to go about my farm. i intend to start mine by the end of feb, 2012.

    one thing i want to ask of you is for you to send me your email address so that i can contact you when i am ready to start my farm. also, if you can give me names/address of individuals and/or companies in ghana who have been successful in such ventures so that i can consult them.

    thank you.

  2. ernest djan Says:

    I need to find out how you built your sty, where is yours for me to book an appointment for a site visit. thanks and wishing you all the best in your journey- good luck.

    • Kow Says:

      I have just finished flowing the concrete floor. am still not through with the building. Its a 32 feet by 33ft building that can give me 8 rooms of 8by8ft and another long room of 14ft by 33ft. I would try and send you the plan and would invite you when everything is completedWould be raising the block and probably roof the structure before the end of the month. When everything is finished and the pigs purchased and transported to site, then I will mail you to come and visit.
      All the best ernest.

    how will i get a good gilt and the address of the farm

  5. Kay Says:

    This has been very helpful! How can i get in touch. need a layoout design for the sty.

    • olumo Says:

      What you are about to start will take a lot of money. To minimize cost however I will advice you start with four rooms and a store.
      The Dimensions I used was 10ft by 16ft for each room. Build two of such rooms. The other two should measure 10ft by 8ft. Use one to keep both males and the other as a store room.

      You can add a verander of 5ft wide and build this modest structure and Later on you can add similar structure at opposite end.

      Attached is a jpeg drawing for your perusal.

      You should not spend more than 50mil on this structure if all materials is around.

      Try download pig farming on youtube and see what others in Phillipines, Brazil and around the world are doing.

      You will need to visit other pig farm to steal ideas on their structure.

      But for yours, they need to dig foundation, fill and concrete it and raise it to 5 block course all round. Let them fix pillars which should be at about 8 – 10ft long at the corners of the farm and at possibly 8ft apart and let them roof the building on the pillars

      feeding troughs and water troughs should be build with half block inside the sty, you need to see how others did theirs to get a good idea.

      The problem i can foresee is when your pigs give birth. If all the eight pigs give birth to say ten piglets each around the same time them you will need to create room for eighty piglets and that’s when you might be hot. Start thinking of expansion immediately you buy your 10 pigs

      wishing you all the best

      email me and let me give you a sample sty design on

      What do you have and what is your aim or venturing into this business, whats your cash like, do you have a land or can you raise loan to build the sty? I might be able to help if I know your starting point

  9. John Jeffrey Nyame Says:

    i really am ready now !! i mean i hav the money and the land…

    all i want to do is see a successful pig farm in ghana so that i can go and learn how it was done. i would also love it if u can direct me to a body, group, agency etc in ghana where i can consult. some books on pig farming in africa esp ghana will also do.

    can u help please!! (0244 767 416) thanks in advance

    • olumo Says:

      Unfortunately, I don’t know of any agency that can help you with your pig farming but i strongly believe the animal research institute of Legon can assist. What do you really have.

      You having the land is good, but where is it situated. Do you have water around and will the stench from the pig farm affect the neighborhood, think about all these.

      I took a forty million loan from the bank and added 20mil of my salary to build my big farm of dimension 33ft by 50ft, I am still not through. I have spent close to 90mil on the structure alone. I think i did it too big. Build something within your capacity and if I may ask, how many pigs do you want to start with?

      With the food and stuff and the breeds, I think we can help each other out. mail me on

  10. joseph fynn Says:

    i like to start a pig farm..i have a land but i dont no the size of it….i am a student how can u help me…

    • olumo Says:

      To do pig farming, you need some cash. Where is the land located and how much can you raise, you can try a buy two females and a male and grow your stock from there. I am sure by the time you finish your national service, the number of pigs you have may have quadrupled. In your case i will advice you start small and grow it.

      All the best

  11. OB Says:

    I am a farmer of 15 sow unit so I realy understand what you are talking about. But the secret is my friend feeding 400 piglets to be sold at 400gh is not a joke becouse one, you will need expansion and also huge hum of money to be able to feed them. Calculate the per kilo of feed each animal will eat and salaries within a period of say 10 months. Then we can start thinking about 200,000gh cash. Wish u visit ma farm one day at Nsawam. For more discussion thank you

    • olumo Says:

      I really wish I can visit your farm and I think I will try. OB, when did you start your pig farm and how have you fared. Hmm, can I rear 400 pigs, do I have the money for the expansion? For the feeding, I have 12 acres of maize farm. I think I will give it a try.

      OB, how much do you sell your 6 months old piglets.

      • John Jeffrey Nyame Says:


        i will like to visit your farm to learn a couple of things from you. i am about to start mine at elmina. i have a vast land which i hav decided to develop just a small (70ft x 59ft) part for the farm. i hav started clearing the land and the block work also. please mail @ so that i can book an appointment. thanks

    • George Says:

      OB, i will be very glad to visit your farm before i start mine for some lessons Please if you can email me i will appreciate it so much.

  13. Richard Says:

    Dear All,

    I would like to start a pig farm on 50 acres. I would want to know which area or location is best to first acquire the land, how much i need to acquire the land and then the setup of the farm. I want to use 48 acres for the farm but will divide among goat and pig farming. Anybody with some idea should kindly help me out. Email me at Thank you.

    • olumo Says:

      50 acres is big. Your farm and the infrastructures for the pig farm would not take more than two acres initially. A lot of decision that you will have to make would depend on the cash in your pocket.
      How many pigs do you want to start with?
      How much do you have for your first pig sty?
      DO you want to grow your own sows or you want to buy piglets from other farms and sell them when they reach market size?
      How much do you really want to put in this business,

      Think about some of these questions, ask other pig farmers about their opinions before your really start. But with what have been through so far, i would advice you start small, gain some experience and grow your swine with time.

  14. kofi Says:

    Pig farming is profitable but…
    There is a lot involved in getting your pigs ready for the market.When it comes to selling your animals its good to get a supply contract with restaurants and chop bars and hotels.It is better to slaughter the animals yourself than sell the animal whole.Its best to find a skilled butcher to carve the pig deftly so you get as little ‘waste’ as possible.Then you are sure to get minimum of 6 cedis a kilo for your 60-90 kilo dress weight pig.
    Proper feeding = Bigger Healthier Pigs

    Its logical to grow food for your pigs but are you going to make more money easily selling your maize or cassava for human consumption?
    My old man told me.. Try not to feed a pig what you can feed a human with.

    • olumo Says:

      I am in a dilemma, i planted maize on a 12 acres land close to where my pig farm is located. I bought some malt before transporting my pigs to the farm. My problem now s that i am being advised not to feed the pigs too much maize because they might grow too big.

      I have reared broilers all my life so i have some knowledge in feed preparation. The idea was to buy some soya bean cake, palm kennel cake with some rice bran to mix it with the maize. So my question is with 7 months gilts that are yet to conceive, what is the best meal to feed them. What proportion of maize should be added to their feed.

      Don’t feed pigs what human beings can eat, presently in modern day pig farming, what alternative do we have?. I have seen other pig farms in the USA and the quantity of maize and soya beans cake used in feeding their animals is not easy. Do you no of any pig farmer with about 1000 pigs in Ghana?

  15. Tawiah Says:

    tanks been ma dream bt i was a bit scared of how to sell nw i tink i have a fair idear. @ OB can u mail me,i stay around amasaman and would like to visit yourr farm so i get a fair idea abt da whole tin.i hav to try and kick start.

  16. peter Says:

    I am trying to finance a friend in Berekum some kind of farming.
    first he thought of chickens but that seems economically not worth while. you just loosing money. pig seems to be a good alternative or maybe goat? how much do you pay for vaccines and how much are pigs anyway? after reading you need to supplement the eating with special pig food as well. is this largely available and for how much? I would really like to make this work but it has to make some sense.
    thank you for any advice

  17. kofi Says:

    Hi olumo, your aim is to get your gilts healthy lean and fertile and most definitely not fat.
    Normally piglets need the richest feed to quickly get to 20kg after which they can be given ‘filler’ i.e. Low quality feed.
    A mix I’m familiar with is 1 bag maize+1 bag soya bean + 20 bags wheat bran
    + lots of clean water!
    given at 2% body weight.

    Just note that pigs generally don’t need too much protein.
    Farmers in the USA can afford to feed pigs maize because its cheaper to grow maize there and they grow much more than they need.Our case is different.
    There is a pig farm in Ashanti,Asamoah and Yamoah Farms..They raise LOTS of pigs!

  18. sakey Says:

    Wow that’s great, great to fined this info, but i have already started my farm a month ago, but i don’t have much money so i have 3 sows and one bore, i think this info is great,

  22. David Says:

    Great info, i ve really enjoyed reading all the comments above. I wish someone can comment on the ready market and the sales process when the pigs mature for sale

  23. maxwell Says:

    hello olumo i will want to know is there a way to kill the stench from the pig farm knowing if the smell is too much it will provoke neighbours…thank you for all the info

    • olumo Says:

      your best way of managing the stench is to build a biogas digester. It is expensive if you contact an expert to build one for you but if you can download samples from the internet and do it yourself, it will be much cheaper. That is why it not very advisable to start the farm in a community or in town, go to the outskirt of town and start it, in the long term, it will benefit you.

      • maxwell Says:

        OK thank you very much ,so how do you manage to sell the pigs after maturity isn’t transportation going to be extra cost ? and is there ready market for them ??

  24. K. Amoah Says:

    Please I will need to meet you in person and brief me more this matter since I’m very interested.

    • olumo Says:

      glad you want to start pig farming. Depending on your pokect, you can start with 2 to 3 sows. There are about 3 to 4 farms from winneba to swedru. For feeding, if you can patrol the secondary schools, you can minimize your feed cost, if you want to really feed them well, maize, wheat bran, soya beans cake, then you will spend about 25 ghana cedis per month on each sow. dont venture into this business if you are un employed. you should have some savings or some source of cash to take care of the animals

  42. paakojo Says:

    how do i find u

  43. stephen Says:

    i am planing of how to start my farm with 8 piglet 6 sow and 2 boars,how many rooms do i need for that and also what shoud i used for building? can i use blocks and wire-mersh?

    • olumo Says:

      you can put all the 8 piglet in one room measuring 8ft by 12ft,you will need 6 smaller rooms for the six sows, 5ft by 8ft will do. you don’t need two boars for a start, feeding two boars is expensive, you can even rent a boar to cross your sows when they come on heat.
      no matter what structure you decide to build, you will spend money, if you have have cash, I will recommend you go for the block building, but if it is limited, start small and spend less on their structure.

    Hey guys,
    I am really impressed about this flow of information.

    Putting together a strategic plan for a small scale piggery. Do you recommend going in for a sow / or gilt.

    I am terrified about the feeding of these livestock. What do you think?

    • olumo Says:

      Going for a sow which can be crossed withing a month or two is the best. If you have time, cash and a truck, feeding should not be too difficult.

    I have the land and want to start with 10 females and 2 males please advise me with the house and cost

    • olumo Says:

      Where is your land? You starting with 10 sows means you have to make plans for expansion quickly. If you get 10 gilts that you can cross in two months, you will have about 80-100 piglets depending on how you keep them. You have to make plans for the coming piglets and that is going to be your challenge.

    You guys are wonderful. I just spoke with Ekow, and it’s been a wonderful experience. My major question is how to reduce the stench to avoid confrontations with neighbors. I am ready to do everything except procuring the mechanical means. Can good house keeping and hygiene reduce the stench?

  79. Tony Says:

    Hi Olumo. Interesting article. A friend told me to start pig farming and so I decided to find out more, and now I am convinced. given that prices have changed since the first estimate, can you give me a new estimate for starting a farm? Sty cost for 10 sows and 2 boars. I already have land near kasoa.

    • olumo Says:

      Hello Tony,
      Because of the training workshop, things are tight now. Will definitely address your questions soon

  80. frank Says:

    hi Olumo considering the recent price hikes can you kindly update the business plan and cost for 10 sows and 2 boars? Also i’m ready to start with 2 plots of land. will that be enough?

  81. Jonathan Says:

    Kobby says,,
    How much will need to start with 7 females and 2 males if I have the land alreafdy

    • olumo Says:

      Do you mean the cost of the animals. Gh6000 can get you 9 70kg animals. but the cost of structure, it varies on what you decide to build
