In view of the importance of pig farming in terms of it's contribution to rural poor and possible potentials for pig rearing in our country. In order to make available good foundation stock, regional pig breeding stations were established for each bacon factory. Further expansion of pig breeding programmes paved the way for establishment of 115 pig breeding farms (1992-93) through out the country.
