The study aimed to obtain baseline information about production, feeding, and marketing practices of native pig raisers in selected regions of the Philippines. A total of 240 native pig raisers were personally interviewed using either self-assisted or self-administered survey questionnaire. The multi-stage sampling procedure was used in the selection of the provinces, municipalities, and barangays covered by the study. Descriptive statistics was used in this research study. Majority of respondents were male, in their productive age, married, finished elementary education and with 1-5 household members.  Moreover, respondents mentioned that native pig raising has been a traditional enterprise and has been their major source of income.  Common problems encountered consist of inadequate capital, lack of technical knowledge, diseases, low market price and high cost of feeds. Parents and friends are sources of knowledge and information in native pig raising. Overall, majority of the respondents employed traditional practices in terms of feeds and feeding, housing, breeding, health and disease prevention, and marketing.
