When done right swine farming can be very productive and may being good earnings as well.
But it is very important that you really know what you are doing when starting out because you can easily make costly errors. 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 must place your swine pen in a flat place that is free from mud that can being insects.
Your pig pen should be large enough to accommodate all of your pigs and should be comfortable to your pigs as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and concrete slabs. The 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 smells that the pigs produce you may put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design sections in the pen where your swine can feed, sleep and relieve themselves. A good roofing is necessary as well to protect your swine from extreme weather like heat and rain.
After you have built a pig pen you then go ahead in getting the right pig breed for your project. This needs to be done carefully. Make sure that you purchase 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 plus clean water on daily bases. Remember to clean the pen every occasionally to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A healthy hog will produce quality meat thus bringing you more profits.
