Abstract: Greek pig-farming is presenting a clear shift towards modern business structures. However, the current conditions of the globalized market for agricultural products and meat products specifically, are pointing towards a need for further improvements to be made regarding the competitiveness of pig-farming in Greece. It is therefore considered essential to financially support and strengthen the infrastructure of pig holdings, with the aim of enhancing their level of productivity and economicity. A survey of the financial and zootechnical performance of pig holdings and the creation of clusters of holdings that follow a similar pattern (typology) can assist in taking the appropriate investment decisions, and implementing more rational financing schemes. The objective of this paper is to formulate financing proposals for the restructuring of Greek pig farms, based on the latter’s performance in relation to various qualitative, financial and zootechnical parameters. The use of cluster analysis has highlighted five clusters of pig holdings with specific financial operations and a particular zootechnical performance. From an analysis of the typology, the need arises to modernize the pig farms, focusing on improvements to their facilities and mechanological equipment. Furthermore, the planning and financing of an effective programme for the genetic improvement of pigs in Greece, is expected to lead to a reduction in livestock costs and an increase in the productivity of the animals.
