LOCAL AND MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES FOR DOMESTIC PORK PRODUCTION IN PERI-URBAN LOCALITIES OF VALLE DE MÉXICO

Abstrac


In this study, the main local and management strategies for domestic pork production in peri-urban localities of Valle de México are shown. Among the first, the use and appropriation of natural resources used for livestock feeding are recognized, as well as the type of animal marketed (weaned piglet), the family workforce and the distribution of activities within the production unit. In none of the pork systems analyzed does pork production constitute the primary economic activity of the families; however, its economic contribution reached an equivalent of up to 1194 days of minimum wage per year. The economic resources for production are part of an intricate mechanism of family capitalization, which allowing obtaining dividends at the time of the product sale. These elements are part of a set of evidences that contribute information and support the need of granting greater recognition, given their capacities for self-management and management of natural resources.
