Even before he retired from a government hospital in 2014, Dr. Camilo S. Garganta already knew what he would do after leaving his employment. He wanted to do his own brand of farming.

After retiring he already  has an ongoing farm where he raises livestock like pigs, cattle, goats, sheep and chickens. His farm is in Brgy. Sarnap, Batac City.

His main commercial interest is swine raising. He breeds, sells some of his weanlings and fatten the rest. He now believes that producing weanlings for sale is a profitable project because there are so many farmers who are interested in buying piglets for fattening.

Producing weanlings for sale is a profitable business. Turnover is fast and the piglets eat just a small amount of feed.

On the average, a month-old piglet sells for about P2,500. The beauty about piglets for sale is that the turnover is fast and you don’t spend a lot in feeding the weanlings.

He has started adopting the use of rice hull as bedding for his herd. He has also started to plant the Super Napier that he could use as feed not only for his pigs but also for his other livestock.
