Naki­fu­ma Farm in Uganda

Sep­a­ra­tor S655

Rapid start at Naki­fu­ma Farm in Uganda: In just a short time, a chicken farm was trans­formed into a modern pig breed­ing and pro­cess­ing operation.

In the vicin­i­ty of Kampala, not far from Lake Vic­to­ria in Uganda, Africa, native Scots­man Colin Watson laid the foun­da­tion for a modern pig farm at the start of 2019. Watson, who has worked on inter­na­tion­al devel­op­ment aid projects since 1986, took over a chicken farm there, togeth­er with his team. The goal was to trans­form the oper­a­tion into a pig farm capable of meeting the local demand for pork with a very high level of quality.

With united forces

Ambi­tious goals in view

As the first step, 440 sows pri­mar­i­ly of South African breed­ing were quar­tered in the newly adapted stalls. The first piglets were born at the start of May 2020, and by the end of August, the first of the meat was ready for delivery.
All steps take place on the farm: breed­ing, slaugh­ter­ing and refrigeration.

Par­tic­u­lar value is placed at the farm on the quality and correct com­po­si­tion of the feed for the pigs. It is pre­pared at the local feed mill accord­ing to a special recipe spec­i­fied by the farm and then trans­port­ed to the farm. The various areas – pig farm, slaugh­ter­house, trans­port, land man­age­ment, mar­ket­ing and man­age­ment – now provide work for roughly 50 employ­ees, all ded­i­cat­ed to quickly achiev­ing the ambi­tious goal of pro­duc­ing 12,000 kilo­grams of meat per week.

Advan­tages of separation:

Naki­fu­ma Farm appre­ci­ates the advan­tages of manure sep­a­ra­tion: The volume and odor are con­sid­er­ably reduced, and the solids can be stored without special pre­cau­tions. Plus, a new project for lucra­tive uti­liza­tion of the solids is well under way.
