NIGERIA - Before Oyinlade Adetutu graduated from the University of Ibadan in 2005, she had already made up her mind not to go into the already saturated labour market.

Though she specialised in fisheries, she got to know about pig farming and became attracted to it because of the reported high profit margin derivable from it.

Pig farming, according to her, is a business that can catapult an investor from the position of an employee to that of an employer of labour with high returns on investment within a little space of time.

She explains, "As an undergraduate, I had already made up my mind that I would not search for any white collar job, but would practise what I studied so that I could also become an employer of labour. So, before I graduated, I had saved some money, which I used in acquiring a piece of land at Oke Aro, Ogun State, which I started with."

Adetutu, who started with just three piglets and one in-pig (a pregnant pig), but currently has about 150 animals, advises that anybody who wants to venture into pig farming must first acquire a piece of land.
