Using Logistic Growth Model to Analyze Pig Pen Productivity

Using Logistic Growth Model to Analyze Pig Pen Productivity

There is no gainsaying that in Nigeria, particularly in the South-East region of the country, the pig pen is rapidly becoming a very lucrative farming method. Before anyone goes into it, this method of animal farming is very cost-effective and does not require much preparation, as pigs are a very unique breed of animals that can eat almost any type of food, and as compared to chicken poultry or fish poultry company, they do not fall sick easily. That was why this paper then explored how pig breeding could help fix environmental waste pollution, since much of the waste produced from the food we eat that would make the environment contaminated could be turned into feed for the pigs, which indirectly helps to address the problem of waste generation. This research uses the growth and decay model of logistics to examine the breeding process of pigs in a given area. Octave 4.2.1 was used to graph the population of the pig against time in years and to also control waste against the population of the pig. Over a certain proposed time, we then examined the growth pattern of the pigs in the pen. We came up with some policies from the study that sustain the pig population in the pen without having to over-shoot the pen’s carrying capacity. It is appropriate for the government to come up with policies that would direct pig farmers on the number of pigs that would / should be in a given pen size. Since pig farming has the potential to make a positive contribution to Nigeria ‘s GDP, if the government truly focuses its resources on promoting it. In order to make the analysis a little more complicated, more research can be performed with stiffer restrictions, in order to add further enhancement to the current report.
