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.
