When done right pig farming can be very rewarding and may being some good profits 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 that can be found in this article.
When beginning pig farming you should first plan on where you want your swines to call home. For pig housing you must construct a well ventilated pig pen which is spacious as well. You must place your pig pen in a flat area that is free from mud that may being insects.
Your pig pen should be adequate to accommodate your swines and really should be comfortable to your swine as well. To make it comfortable you can install hog wire and concrete slabs. The fence should be buried 6 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 odors that the pigs produce you can put hay and straws on the floor. You can even design areas in the house where your swine can feed, rest and relieve themselves. A good roofing is required as well to protect your pigs from extreme weather like heat and rainwater.
After you have designed a pig pen you then go ahead in choosing the right swine breed for your project. This should 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 have to do is take good care of them. You can do this by providing them with food and clean water everyday. Keep in mind to clean the pen every every now and then to make sure that bacteria doesn’t develop in the pen. A proper hog will produce quality meat thus bringing you more revenue.
