When done right swine farming can be very rewarding and can being nice earnings as well.
However it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you may easily make costly errors. So make sure you get the right information and guidelines which 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 must construct a well aired pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat place that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your swine pen must be adequate 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 surrounding 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 odours that the swine produce you may put hay plus straws on the ground. You may also design parts in the house where your pigs can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A nice roofing is needed as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rainfall.
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 purchase your swine from a seller who has learned 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. This can be done by providing them with food and clean water on daily bases. Keep in mind to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t grow in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus giving you more profits.
