When done right swine farming can be very productive and may being nice earnings as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when starting out reason being you can easily make costly errors. Make sure you get the right information and guidelines that can be found in this article.
When starting out in pig farming you should first plan on where you want your domestic swine 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 must be adequate to accommodate your swines and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire and 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 make sure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odours that the pigs produce you may put hay plus straws on the ground. You can even design areas in the pen where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your project. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your pigs 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. You can do this 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 giving you more revenue.
