Present study was conducted to assess the prevailing pig production management practices among farmers in Tripura. The data were collected from total 208 farmers from 16 villages of 8 blocks of four districts on four different aspects namely, housing, breeding, feeding and health care practices through personal interview and self observation. The study revealed that majority of farmers reared cross bred (84%) for fattening purpose (71%) in backyard (79%) without specific housing (66%) arrangement.  Kitchen waste along with small quantity of homemade concentrate two times per day was main feeding practice. It was concluded that due to lack of information, majority of farmers do not follow scientific feeding, breeding and health care practices.
