When done right pig farming may be very productive and may being good profits as well.
However it is very important that you really know what you are doing when beginning because you can easily make costly mistakes. 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 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 swine pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may attract insects.
Your pig pen must be adequate to accommodate all your domestic swine 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 six 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 smells that the pigs produce you can put hay plus straws on the ground. You may also design areas in the pen 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 rain.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right swine breed for your task. 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 swine are in their houses all you need to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food and clean water on daily bases. Also remember to clean the pen every occasionally to ensure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy pig will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
