Abstract:

Pig farming is a household traditional activity in the hill district of Assam. 100 pig farmers were purposively selected from two blocks namely Jatinga Valley Development Block and Diyungbra ITDP Block for the present study. Structured interview schedule was used for data collection after pretesting and validation of the schedule. Majority of the pig farmers (82.00%) of the respondents belonged to medium category of distribution in place/person to whom pig was sold in Block all categories (i.e. Block I, Block II and Pooled sample). It was also revealed that 70 per cent, 84 per cent and 83 per cent were in medium category in the area of mode of marketing in Block I, Block II and pooled sample respectively. When specifically studied, it was revealed that a large proportion of 96 per cent, 70 per cent and 83 per cent of the respondents sold their pigs when pig was around one year in Block I, Block II and pooled sample respectively. In case of mode of marketing it was found that 70 per cent, 36 per cent and 53 per cent of the respondents’ preferred selling to vendors in Block I, Block II and pooled sample respectively and in Block II 78 per cent preferred selling live sale at farm. There was significant difference between the respondents of the two block (t=5.38, P<0.01) with regard to place/ person to whom pig was sold. There was also significant difference between the respondents of the two block (t=4.82, P<0.01) with regard to mode of marketing.
