Technical Efficiency in Pig Production in Ogun State, Nigeria

Olasunkanmi M. Bamiro    

Abstract: This study examines the technical efficiency in pig production among swine farmers in Ogun State, Nigeria. The study was based on primary data obtained in a cross section survey that involved 100 randomly selected pig farmers in Egba and Yew divisions of Ogun State. The data was analysed by both descriptive and Stochastic Production Frontier techniques. It was found out that technical efficiency are influenced by number of sow and feed intake. Both factors have inefficiency reducing effect. Farmers should therefore adopt cost-reducing strategy known as vertical integration; and increase their number of sow and supply the pigs with quality feed so as to foster increased efficiency in swine production.
