People are called upon to draw inspiration from the experience of others in terms of pig farming


Aug 7, 2023

MAKAMBA August 7th (ABP) – The surrounding people of Samuel’s Hope farm located in Nyabigina village, Kabonga zone of Nyanza-Lac commune in Makamba province, are called on to approach the farm to acquire pig farming techniques.

The veterinarian of that farm, Mr. Eric Ndayisenga, indicated this last week, during an interview with a check by ABP. According to him, the farm has a vision to build a butcher shop to produce good quality pork. Mr. Ndayisenga indicated that it is a project initiated by a Burundian living in the United States of America, Mr. Samuel Ndayiragije, which started in April 2023 with 55 pigs and which today has 147 pigs with 10 workers.

He advises people wishing to raise pigs to buy pigs in a similar natural environment. If, for example, someone is from the plain of Imbo, they will have to look for the pigs to raise in the same locality, he says. As animal husbandry goes hand in hand with agriculture, Samuel’s Hope has four tractors that people can rent them for plowing purpose. He finally indicated that Samuel’s Hope will open another farm at Buheka, in the Kazirabageni zone.

The appeal made by the Head of State to raise rabbits has been understood
Bujumbura – Livestock A soldier of the 412th battalion has embarked on rabbit farming project BUJUMBURA, November 13th (ABP) – Soldier Leonidas Nsengiyumva has responded well to the appeal of the President of the Republic of Burundi who calls on Burundians and State institutions to engage in rabbit farming, a check at the headquarters of the Kabezi commune in Bujumbura province by ABP has revealed. His entrepreneurial leadership in raising rabbits started last April and now has more than 135 rabbits and plans to move forward. He wants to become a large rabbit farmer with a large number of rabbits, with a view to providing rabbits to those who would like to raise them. He has already provided rabbits to those who want them. Last month, he sold 12 rabbits, for 25 thousand BIF each. He plans to expand the hutch little by little because, he stressed, the iron sheets, boards and pipes are expensive today. Mr. Nsengiyumva revealed two major challenges to that breeding. He cited a lack of veterinary technicians and good breed rabbits. He called on the State to help rabbit farmers to treat rabbits and provide them with good breeds in order to cross them with the local breed to find a disease-resistant breed.
