In Nicaragua, pig production has gone from the traditional backyard farm production to the production on semi-technified farms, this allowing it to go from a self-sufficiency of 40% to 70%. With this strategy, the Nicaraguan government proposes to increase to 100% the self-sufficiency of the national consumption.

Currently, the Nicaraguan pig herd has 515,615 heads on 150,338 production units, where creole breeds, and crosses with improved breeds to a lesser degree, are used. With this strategy it is proposed, together with the pig producers and the institutions of the production system, to improve the production and reproduction indices on the intensive and semi-intensive farms in all the country, the adding of value to pork, and its processing to obtain products and by-products for the opening to new markets.

  • Porcine genetic improvement
    • New crosses and the rescue of breeds with a high pork production
    • Artificial insemination as a strategy for porcine genetic improvement
  • Increase in productivity on the pig farms
    • Improve nutrition to increase the production and reproduction indices
    • Strengthen the implementation of technologies for the increase of the production indices on the farms
  • Animal health management and safety of the farms with the aim of declaring Nicaragua free of pig diseases
  • Good environmental and animal health practices
  • Development of the pork agroindustry by promoting the processing and adding of value to pork
  • Access to competitive markets to improve the pig producing families’ income
