Abstract:

Globally, pork is the most consumed meat but in India, consumption of pork is limited to few regions of the country. Pigs being the efficient feed converters can solve the problem of increasing meat demand due to population rise and also supplement the income of poor and small/marginal farmers. Learning from the success stories of few progressive farmers, one easily derives that piggeries are the new found gold mines and their potential is yet untapped in our country. This review presents the SWOT analysis of pork production in India highlighting the lacunas that exist in the production system along with the future trends of pig farming in India.


Keywords: Pork, Pig Production, Pork consumption in India, Pork potential in India
