When done right pig farming may be very rewarding and can being good profits as well.
Nonetheless it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly mistakes. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines which can be found in this article.
When starting out in pig farming you should first plan on where you want your swines to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well aired pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your swine pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your pig pen should be large enough to accommodate all your swines and really should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The fence must be buried 6 inches deep in the ground so that the pigs don’t dig under it. Concrete slabs will make sure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odors that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the floor. You can even design parts in the house where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right pig 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 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 occasionally to ensure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A proper pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more profits.
