Functioning of the Pig Distribution Systems in Cameroon. In prospect to improve the ability of animal production to satisfy the ever-increasing demand in proteins, a study was conducted in order to determine the efficiency with which services are carried and priced on the Cameroon livestock and meat market. The main results show that, despite their more or less formal aspect, the pig distribution channels are well structured to permit easy flow of the pig products, with specialized actors at each level of the chain. However, the analysis of the links between marketing margins and transaction costs revealed the inefficiency of pig distribution systems. In addition to the unstable nature of transactions, the low capital turnover resulting in the lake of adequate structural and functional organisations, stable outlets, as well as capital and insurance are apparently responsible for the bad performances of the pig market in Cameroon.
