When done right pig farming may be very productive and may being good profits as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when starting out because you may 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 pigs to call home. For pig housing you should construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your pig pen should be adequate to accommodate your domestic swine and should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you may install hog wire plus concrete slabs. The surrounding 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 odours that the pigs produce you can put hay plus straws on the ground. You may also design sections in the pen where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is necessary as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your project. This should be done carefully. Make sure that you buy 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 have to do is take good care of them. This can be done 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 develop in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus bringing you more income.
