The present study was conducted to assess the marketing system of pig in Allahabad district of Uttar Pradesh. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the marketing channels of pig production. Majority of the respondents 47.2% sold piglets at one month of age at a price of Rs. 1500-2000 while most of the respondents 41.6% sold their adult pigs at 11-12 months age at a price of Rs. 130-140 per kg weight. The small pig farmer could not achieve maximum profit due unawareness of market price and involvement of middlemen in the market channels.
