Cambodia to import Yorkshire breeding pigs

A private company in Cambodia is set to import pigs from a breeder in Yorkshire, England, in a move that aims to improve agricultural production in Cambodia and satisfy increasing demand among consumers, reports the The Phnom Penh Post.


US$5 million
Mong Reththy, a Cambodian People's Party senator and co-chair of the Agricultural and Agro-Industry Working Group, will spend US$5 million purchasing and importing the Yorkshire breeders.

"The only solution for meeting local demand for pork in the future is to import genuine breeders and distribute them to local pig raisers," said Mong Reththy, who heads the agribusiness company Mong Reththy Group. "We will import 600 male and female breeders starting from December this year to February 2009," he said, adding that the breeding program would only be successful with the cooperation of local pig farmers.

Announcement welcomed
Kao Phal, director of the Animal Health and Production Department of the Ministry of Agriculture, welcomed the announcement of the breeding program and said it was an important step towards greater sustainability.

"Cambodia currently needs about 7,000 pigs per day for domestic consumption, and Phnom Penh alone needs 1,600 per day," he said. Cambodia currently imports about 800 pigs each day from Thailand.

"Cambodia currently imports about 800 pigs each day from Thailand."

This smells like opportunity.

There's a South African in Thailand making 40,000bt a month on the four pigs he has. He's got them on rotation. One female a month gives birth and he sells off the piglets. Chaching!

They must be golden piggy's :bow:
I don't know the going rate for pigs in Thailand. It was some time since I was there.
Piglets in Cambodia sell from $20 to $45 maximum. Live pig rate is down to just over $1.

Let me rephrase; There's a guy in Thailand who 'says' he's making 40k a month from his pigs.

You know more about the market than me. It seems demand is there, so profitability must be also?

I dont think the profit margin in pigs is good if you have to buy pig food. Have you seen how much food they eat to gain one kg.,,, you might even say they make a pig of them selves. Dont forget to add on the killing costs, transport and the occasional loss or theft and then there's the ones you have to donate to the weddings and poor relatives , And let's not forget the village chief for all the good thing he has done for you and the family.
