The pig industry is a monopsony. There is only one large buyer: FARMER'S CHOICE. They have control of prices so you will almost always get a bad deal. Kenyans don't eat pork often so if you ever scale up, you will have to sell to farmer's choice for lack of alternatives.

I have reared pigs and I discovered a few things. If u want to sell to farmers choice. Feed the pigs with good feeds (unga products etc) to control body fat content.
Dead weight ya 70kgs (export) fetches the best price.

if u want to sell to local butcheries feed them with alternatives (hotel wastes etc).
