Cannot lose money in pigs teerak...hmmmm

Recommended Posts

Ok just met a great girl from sakon nakon...mum owns lots land. Girl says she has fallen in love with me ( or my money lol ) she wants us to go live in isaan ( these thai chicks move fast ) anyway she does seem like a lovely girl and i just spent a couple months with her . She told me her mum will give chanote for about 6 rai of land to me if i want to make pig farm with my new teerak. I smell a rat and am definately in no hurry to waste or throw money into this venture. I do know that meal is getting more expensive but my girl has told me that meal csn also be substituted with other food such as coconut husks etc etc but i dont know. She does firmly believe she cannot lose money in pigs. I simply dont know but am curious to learn about this as if i did stay with her long term i would consider this. Sure it eould be better than investing money into a pattaya bar surely lol. She said about 500.000 baht should start us off. She has he own money also plus she has house she can borrow money off back of from bank but she wants joint venture. Your thoughts please

What previous experience does she have of running a pig farm?

What makes you think she could run one successfully now?

(or any other business for that matter)

How many new Thai business ventures have you seen fail within 6 months with a total loss to all investors?

She hasn't but the parents probably have.

The OP is only good for the money he will put in......the rest is up to them.......till they get fed up with him and throw him out.

OP, are you old enough to dig yourself in at an Isaan village?

Except for some very special people, living in Isaan is an endless bore.

Ive lived in isaan for a good number of years with x wife .kalasin region. Yes i wonder if this venture is so good why mamma has not done so before ? Mama has other land growing palm oil etc. Things i would like to learn about is such as how much for piglets . Where to buy from which wholesaler in sakon nakon province. Total cost from piglet to sow and price to sell live . I am in the middle of reading an article from isaan aussie . Very very informative.

If the Family dont Skin You, C.P. will.They get all their info from your food suppliers they own in the area,know exactly what u got then drop their prices to hurt your margins.If youre big, they approach you to raise for them, same as they do to Fish Farmers.

If they get swine fever and die or one of the many diseases that pigs get,

or just simple from over heating, you will definitely loose money.

Ask any pig farmer from the american mid-west to eastern timbuktu. = You can loose a lot of money with pigs. While the statement of GF "you can not loose money with pigs" stands correct, if one is willing and (financially) able to sick with it for 10 years.

Since the Thai-Mentality is not geared for long term-thinking, (unless having chinese ancestrial roots and chinese upbringing) at the first sign of adversity, they will throw in the towel and OP will be faced with a 100 % write off in the magnitude of 500'000 Bht

Generally: Small to mid-sized Farmers in Thailand will gladly confirm: "There is no money in Farming".

OP has 2 ways to disperse of 500'000 Bht:

- Engage in pig- business and loose 500'000 Bht and write a book titled "How I lost 500'000 Bht in Thailnd with pigs" OR;

- How I engaged 500 Hostesses in Thailand and I had the time of my life.

The financial result of both avenues will be the same: All the money gone !

But witch book title would sell better than the other? biggrin.png

Cheers.

I cant believe your even considering it after only a two months of being together.

I lived in Isaan for a few years too, and I think unless your getting married, FORGET IT.

oh no , no intentions after a couple months. just wanted to find out if there is any truth in what she says about pig farming as i allready suspected from the start that she doesnt know what shes talking about or else her mama would be doing it allready !!!

or she is trying to play me like a deck of cards whistling.gif

my sincere advice:

Never and Ever trust to put any cach, or do investment with a Thai lady...

trust me, many foreigners are married fir decades and have hlaf dozen of kids and finally got cheated..

Never join venture, or spoil urself,

invest ur money in stock market, or do something where u can have full control.

beware man..
