Abstract: The study was undertaken to investigate the production system of swine in Rangamati and Khagrachari districts for a period of 60 days from 17th December’ 2008 to 16th February’ 2009. Production system of swine i.e. housing, feeding, breeding, diseases prevalence, vaccination program, bio-security, marketing of swine with socio-economic status and constraints of pig rearing were investigated during the study period. It was revealed that mostly poor and landless people reared pigs (54.71%) where most of them were illiterate (43.39%). Rearing systems they followed, were the free range (43.40%), Tin shed housing (24.53%), Fencing (20.75%) and Neck tethering (11.32%). At Rangamati pig farm the average litter size, birth weight, post- weaning weight, and weaning period were 9.46, 1.7kg, 8.86kg, 41.66 days, in family level farming it was 7.57, 1.33 kg, 7.10 kg, 44.36 days respectively. The prevalence of diseases was Hemorrhagic septicemia (13.73%), Pneumonia (17.64%), Coccidiosis (21.57%), NS diarrhea (37.25%) and others (9.8%) in Rangamati pig farm. The economic benefits generated from farming were mainly selling of piglets and the figure was satisfactory.
