Pig Nutrition Research in Ghana Some achievements, prospects and challenges


Ghana continues to be a net importer of animal products. The general concensus is that there is need for vast improvements in the methods of feeding, breeding and management of pigs to increase pig production in Ghana. The paper highlights the role of feed resources such as Obatanpa maize and some non-conventional feed resources available in Ghana for use in pig feeding. The achievements of non-ruminant livestock researchers in the area of feed and feeding is described as quite significant, but prospects for further work abound.
