Pig husbandry is actively promoted by the Ministry of Agriculture in Eswatini. There is an increasing number of community based organisations interested in starting such a farming business. However, first experiences have shown that the pigs are kept in animal unworthy conditions. As reference document to discuss the topic with the Ministry of Agriculture and with the perspective to integrate pig husbandry projects in our CBO-Program we assigned the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) and Swazi experts to elaborate a leaflet on animal-friendly pig husbandry.
