The study was designed to assess the socio-personal and economic attributes of Tenyi-vo pig farmers in Kohima and Peren Districts of Nagaland. Fifty farmers from each district were selected randomly on the basis of random sampling and interviewed with the help of a structured, pre-tested, reliable and valid interview schedule. Results of analysis revealed that majority of the pig farmers were female (58.0%), in the middle age group (30-51 years), medium income (61,000/--1,09,000/-) and marginal land holding (0.1-2.5 acres). Majority of the farmers reared their pigs in confinement and fed with kitchen waste and locally available agriculture products and leaves.
