Find out the top 4 pig farms in Ghana in this guide
The potential of pig farming has yet to be fully realized and it will take a conscientious effort from all pig farmers to make things work fully. The pig industry in Ghana is not as organized and most farmers labor to finish, leaving little room for specialization. I think that in the near future, after some of us have established a good foundation, pig farming would be very well structured.
Below is the list of the top 4 pig farms in Ghana. Their details are simplified in this article.

Is pig farming profitable?
Today I was asked this question by a future pig farmer. Is pig farming really profitable? I took a deep breath before I could give him an answer. Pig farming is profitable based on how you manage the following
The career you start with can make or break you. I know of two farmers who have imported their breeders from Australia and the UK, respectively. The Nungua herd and college farm breeds also come from a very good parental strain. Your race should be able to turn the food you give them into meat.
The feed conversion ratio of pigs is 3-4: 1, which means that when a pig consumes 3-4 kg of feed, it is expected to gain 1 kg of meat. If that doesn’t happen, you should know that something is wrong.
Management is another factor that can prevent you from achieving your pig farming goals. Being an absent farmer is a great challenge. However, your farm should not be too far from where you reside. The type of care you give your pets largely determines their success.
why pork is relatively expensive in Ghana
Pork is priced higher in Ghana than in Nigeria, even though the prices of corn and soybean cake are much higher in Nigeria than in Ghana. A pound of live weight pork costs $ 2.5 – $ 3.0 in Ghana, while in Nigeria it costs $ 1.5 – $ 1.75
The price difference is due to the fact that our Nigerian brothers operate at a different level.
Most have more than 50 sows on their farm. Therefore, the economy of scale favors them. In Ghana, however, the opposite exists. Only a few farms can boast more than 40 sows. The inefficiency in the system is quite high and until we get the right foundation and expand. It will be very difficult for us to increase the demand with a lower price.
