Technical, marketing support for Bali pig farmers

August 14, 2019

Pig farmers in Bali prefer to get technical and marketing support rather than grants such as free breeder pigs from the government, according to the Bali Pig Farmers Association. “Grants will never educate them. Besides, they sell the pigs when they need money,” Chairman I Ketut Hari Suyasa told Asian Agribiz. “What they really need is technical support on how to improve their farm performance, prevent disease outbreaks and get better profits. Not less important is marketing support. They want good live pig prices.”
