Integrating herd health for improved pig production in Uganda’s central region

Share this to :

The CGIAR Initiative on Sustainable Animal Productivity is testing an integrated herd health package to assess its impact on pig productivity in Uganda.

The innovation package comprising herd health, improved genetics and feeding was co-designed with stakeholders during feedback and co-creation workshops held in September 2022.

As part of the trials, model farms under the management of pig farmer groups are being established to serve as demonstration sites for good housing, improved herd health management, improved feeds and forages as well as improved pig breeds.

Four model farms will be set up by the end of October 2023 in Wakiso and Mukono districts, in central Uganda.
