  Background and Objective: Pigs generates a large number of dungs that could be detrimental to the environment if not properly managed. This study attempt to determine the proximate and mineral compositions in freshly voided pig dung collected from smallholder farms in Imo state, Nigeria for possible use as animal feed. Materials and Methods: Early morning dung were collected from six farms, two from each of the three agro-ecological zones of the state and sundried. The samples were analyzed for their proximate and mineral concentration. Results: The result revealed that pig dungs are good source of dry matter (87.97%), fibre (23.33%), total ash (23.24%) and mineral (potassium, iron, phosphorus). Conclusion: This study revealed that pig dung is a good source of nutrients and could be used as animal feed. The use of pig dungs in animal feed and fertilizer for agricultural soil will lead the development of sustainable environmentally friendly animal and crop farming systems.
