Ask Geri: Where to Buy Piglets and How Much?

I don’t want to dash your hopes and enthusiasm but in the spirit of transparency, I want you to know that we are no longer into hog raising after our first try. The reason is that we found the ROI small, as such we are focusing on other investments which can give us a higher ROI.

Hi Geri,

I’m an OFW but my local residence is in Infanta Quezon. I’m looking into starting my own piggery and I would like to ask for contact details on where I can purchase piglets. – Oliver R.

Hello Geri,

I was Googling hog raising information and was able to see your website! This is so informative especially for those who want to pursue this kind of business. Fortunately, you were also growing your hogs in San Jose, Batangas where I am planning to do the same we have relatives who are staying there. I have some questions regarding this business and here are those:

  • As of this moment, what is the price scheme for the piglets?
  • Also the pricing for the live grown pigs (after 4 months)?
  • Do we have price scheme for grown pigs like in piglets? First 10kg with this price and the rest with this price.
  • Do you have a feed mill that you could refer me to? What is their pricing of their feeds?

I hope you I could meet you and may God bless you for your sharing these information!

Thanks

Chris


Hi Oliver and Chris,

Inquiries on our mini piggery adventure are indeed among the top queries that we get. 

I don’t want to dash your hopes and enthusiasm but in the spirit of transparency, I want you to know that we are no longer into hog raising after our first try. The reason is that we found the ROI small, as such we are focusing on other investments which can give us a higher ROI. 

We are not closing our doors on this one, it’s just that as of now, we have yet to pass through this door again .

Nonetheless, I don’t want to hinder you from trying, hence I would like to direct you to some previous posts below which can hopefully address your queries. You can also find the pricing and cost details from these posts, though these may no longer be updated, since again, we haven’t reinvested in a piggery since we sold ours last year.

Mini-Piggery Venture: SOLD!

We source our feeds from Busilac Feedmills and they are located in San Jose Batangas. As for the piglets, the usual approach is to ask existing hog raisers if they have extra piglets for sale. Normally, since the sow gives birth to so many piglets (e.g. more than 10), some hograisers opt to just grow some of it and then they opt to sell the other piglets to other interested hog raisers.

As for our own piglets, we got ours from a relative, as they have a small piggery too. I shall give the contact details to you via email.

Goodluck and may both of you have richer lives!
