But it is very important that you know what you are doing when starting out because you may easily make costly errors. 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 swines to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well aired swine pen which is spacious as well. You must place your swine pen in a flat place that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your pig pen must be adequate to accommodate all of your pigs and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence must 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 smells that the pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You can also design areas in the house where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right swine breed for your project. This has to be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine from a seller who has found out what are high quality pigs and what are mediocre breeds.
Once your pigs are in their houses all you need to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food plus clean water on daily bases. Also remember to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more income.
