Abstract


This work focuses on the status of the feeding system for pigs reared in the Mbinga-Sud group, Kalehe territory, in South Kivu. He made use of a survey questionnaire with a section of questions to collect the raw data then encoding them finally to produce graphs to produce. The results show that 96% of breeders find that the feeding system of pigs reared in the Mbinga-South group is dominated by conventional feed that pigs pick up during scavenging. Regarding the types of simple food available in the Mbinga-Sud group to feed pigs semi-intensively, 44% of farmers show that green fodder and particularly cassava leaves (sombe) are the most used, 30% affirm that tubers and roots occupy second place, 17% of respondents distribute waste cereal flour and cassava; finally, the 9% indicates the banana constitutes for them a food to provide energy to the pigs. As for the breeding system resulting from a feeding system, the results show that in pig breeding in the Mbinga-Sud group, only 9% of breeders say that breeding is practiced in pigsties or cages; the 61% show that rearing on ties or stakes in a semi-intensive breading system but with the level of rudimentary technicality for the production of pigs; 28% of breeders opt for the supply of food from agricultural residues and remains and 2% practice semi-industrial breeding.
