When done right swine farming may be very productive and may being good earnings as well.
However it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly mistakes. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines that can be found in this article.
When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your pigs to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen should be large enough to accommodate all of your domestic swine and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding fence should be buried six inches deep in the ground so the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will ensure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odours that the pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You may also design areas in the pen where your pigs can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your task. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase your pigs from a seller who has learned what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine are in their houses all you need to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food and clean water on daily bases. Keep in mind to clean the pen every every now and then to ensure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
