This training manual is intended to serve as a guide for the trainers so that they provide the necessary and relevant training methodologies and techniques to enable the value chain members in the pork value chain to understand pig housing and welfare. Some farmers in the Pork Value Chain have been operating without proper pig housing and welfare. This module is a training tool developing the capacities of extension personnel and agents on good pig housing and welfare. The target group is the small to medium farmers (including youths and women farmers), lead farmers (anchor, champion), farmer groups, Business Management Unit
(BMU), syndicate or cooperatives and integrators, who will be trained in this program to enhance their skills at individual and organizational levels. The trainees are expected to utilize the skills in their respective activities in Pig Value Chains. Improved pig housing and welfare will contribute to the overall growth and development of pork value chains in the country. This manual should be used purely as a facilitator’s guide. The sessions under each module are presented with an outcome(s) to facilitate the assessment of participants’ understanding and depth of knowledge at the end of each session. Following the outcomes are the topics to be covered and facilitating methodology. However, the facilitator should feel free to adapt the methodology suggested to the needs of participants.
