"A Centre of Excellence for Pig Development"

Training

PIB conducts practical courses in the field of pig husbandry. The most popular practical course offered is the 3 week practical course. The practical course is conducted at the PIB stations in Arcturus and Bulawayo. The course involves the trainee working alongside experienced stockman during the three week period. During the course the trainees will be given lectures on pig production aspects.

The practical courses are run throughout the year and farmers are advised to book for the course in advance as the number of participants per given period is limited. Long back farmers used to shy away from such courses leaving it to the stockman, but they have realized that they were shying away from profits and also offered to farmers who do not have the time to spend 3 weeks at PIB. PIB also conducts theory courses on different pig production aspects. The courses are conducted throughout the country.
