Pigs for Fertilizer and Income

Gives 1 pig
Gift Description:
$50 will give a pig to a family in need. Pigs provide valuable protein that is easy to dress, cure and store. Your donation will supplement the income and nutrition of a family for many years. Easy to keep and inexpensive to care for, pigs provide food, income and security—especially when the average sow can produce 15 piglets a year! Additional income can be earned from the sale of animals, and piglets can be sold at market for a premium. Pigs are ready to be slaughtered after 6 months of age, with each pig producing well over 100 pounds of meat. Pigs require little space, provide an excellent fertilizer for crops, and happily feed on scraps and other bio waste not used by a family.
