When done right pig farming may be very rewarding and may being some good profits as well.
But it is very important that you know very well what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly errors. So 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 domestic swine to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well aired swine pen which is spacious as well. You should place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your pig pen must be large enough to accommodate your entire domestic swine and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and concrete slabs. The 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 odors that the pigs produce you may put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design sections in the pen where your pigs can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good roofing is required as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your project. This has to be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine from a seller who knows what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your swine are in their houses all you have to do is take good care of them. This can be done by providing them with food and clean water everyday. Also remember to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
