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 should place your swine pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your pig pen should be adequate to accommodate all your swines and really 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 make sure that the floor is proper and easy to clean.
To absorb odors that the pigs produce you may put hay plus straws on the ground. You can even design sections in the house where your pigs can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good roofing is needed as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right swine breed for your project. This must be done carefully. Make sure that you buy your swine 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 need 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 giving you more profits.
